Who We Are
We are rooted in both the Word of God and the Dominican tradition of the Catholic Church. The mission and 800-year legacy of the Order of Preachers is to share with others the Truth about the God whom we contemplate in our hearts.
The Congregation of the Dominican Sisters ~ Grand Rapids is an apostolic community of vowed women religious, each giving her life, promising to live in service to the Church and world.
“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)
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.
