Who We Are
Our desire is for our presence to nurture hope in the world. For hope is that aspect of faith which makes us certain that the world is cared for and loved by God. Hope obliges us to work toward the realization of the promises found in Jesus: freedom, peace, justice, and reconciliation.
Our congregation, the Dominican Sisters ~ Grand Rapids, is an apostolic community of vowed women religious. We are rooted in both the Word of God and the Dominican tradition of the Catholic Church. Each Sister gives her life promising to live in service to the Church and world.
Through prayer, study, community, and service, we share Christ’s message — redemptive love that reflects God’s desire for a just world. Our hope is to continue opening ourselves to the power and presence of the Holy Spirit — and to be a flame of truth, love, hope, and mercy.
“We see first the common ground of our humanity, and allow our differences only to enrich, and not to disparage. In all of our undertakings, we will notice first and foremost the human person before us.” (DSGR Corporate Stance 1999)
