Sunday Assembly

We give thanks to the God who brings us together each week at Eucharist, our center of prayer, where we, as a community of faith, are strengthened and empowered for service.

As Dominicans, we welcome community.

We seek to find God’s face in one another. Before March 14, 2020 our community welcomed all to gather in Dominican Chapel at Marywood  for Sunday Eucharist to celebrate God’s love in our daily lives. But in the times of COVID-19, staying safe at home is the norm. Where we worship with community in the future will continue to evolve as we focus on a dramatic new vision for redeveloping the Motherhouse building. read more

Prayer for Spiritual Communion

Lord Jesus Christ, we know your presence among us in our gathering for the Eucharist, in our prayer, in the Word of God, in the Sacrament of the Body and Blood of Christ.

At this time, as we must refrain from sharing in Communion at the liturgy, we know that you are present in our hearts and souls. Your healing and strengthening grace is available to us every moment of every day.

In our prayer we are “in communion” with you, with one another, with all of our brothers and sisters in the human family. Give us health, peace and safety, and give us hope for the day when we gather again around your table ~ one bread and one body. You live and reign forever and ever. Amen

Our Daily Prayer and Worship Calendar is below.

Note: Our chapels and liturgy are closed to the public at this time.

Prayer and worship locations vary between Dominican Chapel/Marywood (DCM), Chapel of the Word at Marywood Health Center (MHC), and  St. Catherine of Siena Chapel at Aquinata Hall. All are located on our Marywood Campus at 2025 Fulton Street East. Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Parking for Dominican Chapel/Marywood and St. Catherine of Siena Chapel is in our main lot on Lakeside Drive. Parking for Chapel of the Word at Marywood Health Center (MHC) is at 111 Lakeside Drive.
