You are part of this mission.

It is a mission to be in relationship—right relationship—with community, with family and friends, and with our Creator. It is a mission of service, a mission that must be in motion, in order to go where God’s people are most in need.

Dear Friends,

Earlier this year as Sisters packed their belongings and moved to our new Motherhouse, we wrestled with what to bring with us. Was an item too valuable to leave behind? Would it fit in the new space? Would it have a purpose? While these are important questions, I began to think more about what we carry inside us.

As Dominican Sisters, we carry our mission with us. Our mission is not poured into the concrete beneath our feet or tied to the structure that surrounds us. Our mission is to proclaim the Word of God; engaging with the world through prayer and service and by preaching God’s message of love and peace, truth and justice. Our mission is on the move and thriving —just like we are!

You are an important part of this mission.

It is a mission of faith and perseverance in the face of what is unknown or incomprehensible.

It is a mission to be in relationship—right relationship—with community, with family and friends, and with our Creator. It is a mission of service, a mission that must be in motion, in order to go where God’s people are most in need.

As we move into our new space, our new mission headquarters, we continue to faithfully care for our Sisters at every age and stage of life. And because our surroundings impact our wellness and energize us for the work ahead, we are making sure our Motherhouse and our Marywood campus are ready for the task!

Gifts today will help us finish preparing the Motherhouse, including kitchen renovations so we can better serve all Sisters living on campus. These and other needed upgrades will ensure Marywood continues to be an inspiring place from where our mission flows.

As we adjust to our new space, we settle in for the work that lies ahead. But we will not settle for anything less than what God calls us to—the mission we each carry inside us.

With faith, hope, love, and gratitude,

Sr. Sandra Delgado, OP, Prioress
