Dominican Center

We opened the doors of Dominican Center in 1993 with a clear intention: to make a difference in the world by welcoming those from all faith and culture traditions in this contemplative space for prayer, shared study, service, and community-building. When the COVI-19 pandemic rocked the world, we made the difficult decision to close our conference center.

Since then, the village at Dominican Center has been cultivating light and hope from a virtual space. People are staying connected through Zoom, journaling, meditating, praying, and learning. New online offerings are being designed, and we are researching safe ways to hold in-person, socially-distanced programs for small groups.
