This Lent, the U.S. Dominican Sisters invite you to come with us on a journey to find Christ—the Christ deep within you, within each of us.

We spend so much of our lives trying to figure out what we want, who we want to be. Lent is not about giving up things, but about removing those things that get in the way of our being who we really want to be. The truth is that our truest self—our deepest identity—is being as Jesus in our world!

Our Lenten Journey is to discover our own truth in Christ. Each of our paths to get to that truth is different. God has given each of us gifts to use to be our best self, to embrace the humanity that Christ has defined.

Starting Ash Wednesday, come along on a Lenten journey of weekly inspirations as we seek to attune ourselves to listening attentively to the still, small whisper of God’s love. Follow and share the journey here on our news and events blog or on Facebook at

Worship with us at Marywood during Lent and Easter.
