Our Leadership Team 2018-2024

We are servant leaders called to serve in humility, trust, and generosity.

As Leadership, we are tasked with a two-fold mission: to provide for the care of the household that is the Grand Rapids Dominican Congregation and to assure the legacy of our mission and ministries.

Knowing that the Holy Spirit dwells in and works through all in the Congregation, we listen to the wisdom inherent in each Sister and deliberate in a spirit of collegiality. Congregation-wide discernment empowers us to take action on behalf of the Congregation.
