Dominican Associate Life

An Associate heart is a servant heart -- so needed in our world today.

Dominican Associates are non-vowed women and men who desire to practice their Christian faith in the spirit of the Dominican Order of Preachers. More than 150 Associates have made commitment to Associate Life, supporting one another and bringing Dominican values to their family, community, place of worship and workplace. Our mission is to Preach in all ways through Prayer, Justice, Community, Service, Joy, and Study. Touched by the Holy One, we journey in solidarity with the Dominican Sisters of Grand Rapids and with one another. Connecting and collaborating in Christian mission and spirituality, we embrace the Dominican charism ministering in joyful faith and compassionate love.

If you are going to live your life with Christ, one of the great challenges is to forget yourself. We live in a very introverted society, which is always focusing on me, me, me. I think the great challenge, if you are going to be alive, is sometimes the great liberation of forgetting yourself – that’s when you discover in other people their need for your love, and their need for your trust. ~ Fr. Timothy Radcliffe OP
