Together, we can all help limit transmission of the COVID-19 virus — and help protect the vulnerable and elderly people in our community.
Despite these worrisome, uncertain days, Grand Rapids Dominican Sisters remain in mission.
The Dominican pillar of Community remains steadfast even in this time of physical and social distancing. Dominican Sisters and Associates are finding new ways to connect with one another and with those served by our ministries. Our employees, except for a spare few, transitioned to remote work and they continue to support our mission to be the presence of Jesus in this time and place. Sisters are sewing masks and sending messages of support to those on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis.
Each day we pray for you, your loved ones, our community, and our world.
We believe that even in this time of social distancing, our faith has the power to bring us together more closely than ever as brothers and sisters—as God’s people.
Due to COVID-19 the Dominican Chapel at Marywood is closed to the public. Please check our website periodically for any updates.”
We share with others the Word of God — words of life and hope — through our ministries.
Life is abundant with blessings. And one of the greatest blessings is the opportunity to spend time in relationship with God and others in community.
The Marywood Campus is the Motherhouse of the Grand Rapids Dominican Congregation. This oasis of 34 acres in the City of Grand Rapids, Michigan, has long served as an inviting place for ministries of assembly, worship, learning, meditation, art, respite and healing.
Each Sister has a story uniquely her own. She has woven her threads of fabric into a vibrant tapestry made brilliant by the lives of Sisters who came before, the lives of those present today, and the lives of those who will follow.
In living our mission: to praise, to bless, to preach… our very lives are a testimony to what we have seen and heard in Christ. We live, making space in our hearts and lives to be of service to others. Might God be calling you?
