The Dominican Sisters have a deep desire to transform and be transformed through the people and experiences that God brings into our lives. We created the ministry of Dominican Center Marywood at Aquinas College to welcome all to experience the connections and transformative experiences that are foundational to our lives.

Our hope is to open hearts to faith, hope, truth, love, justice, and mercy, promised by the power and presence of the Holy Spirit. We welcome people from all faith and culture traditions for prayer, shared study, service, and community-building.
