Our directions in ministry guide our Congregational Mission and Communal Life
The following directions were accepted by a vote of the Congregation in 2021. We trust that they will guide our Congregational Mission and Communal Life into the future until such time as we will need to reassess their relevance for our changing circumstances as Dominican Preachers of Hope and for the times in which we live.
RELATIONSHIP TO GOD’S MISSION
We commit ourselves to the prophetic call of Religious Life,
our Direction Statements and Corporate Stances to
collaborate in and sponsor ministries that seek to
correct injustices and to effect systemic change for
the common good.
RELATIONSHIP WITH ONE ANOTHER
In a world crying out for a sense of community and
spirituality and in response to the transformation occurring
in Dominican life, we affirm our union and communion with
each other as we participate in, help shape, and support
emerging structural changes.
RELATIONSHIP WITH OTHERS
We commit ourselves to encountering and seeking the Holy
in ourselves, in each other, and in people of all cultures,
lifestyles, and economic status.
RELATIONSHIP WITH EARTH
We commit ourselves to seek right relationships with
Earth, its creatures and climate through conversion of
mind and heart, understanding that the Universe is
sacred and interconnected.
