Mission, Vision, and Core Values

Our Mission

Called by God into right relationship with all creation
and graced by Dominican life and mission,
we compassionately preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our Vision

….. Committed to living the Dominican charism exemplified by Dominic, Catherine of Siena and other holy women and men, we embrace the courage and trust of our foundresses and respond to the signs of our times.

….. Confident in God’s ongoing revelation and stirred by prophetic imagination, we preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ from the depth of our communion with God and one another.

….. As vowed Dominican women, we enflesh this Word in our world, a Word we contemplate and celebrate with joy, study attentively, live in community and proclaim in ministry. (Adapted from Article 1, Constitutions)

Seven core values shape the culture of our congregation: collaboration, contemplative worldview, inclusivity, interdependence, justice, life-long learning and integrity.

We try to embody these principles and bring them to life in our ministries. The video below explains these core values in greater detail. Double click to view the full-size video in a new window.
