We are blessed with many close and loving relationships. In the schools, hospitals and parishes in which we minister, life-long friendships are born. We would like to invite you to a relationship with our community!
Dominican Sisters of Springfield, IL
Be Joy. Share Hope. Live Truth.
Inspired by Saint Dominic and Saint Catherine of Siena, the Dominican Sisters of Springfield, Illinois are called to be signs of hope and voices for truth. With lives enriched by prayer, study of God’s Word, living in community and preaching the Gospel, the Springfield Dominicans minister to people of diverse cultures in the United States and Peru. With active hope, and trusting in the grace of Holy Mystery, we choose to imagine the world we want to inhabit and accept the urgent responsibility to collaborate in bringing it to birth.
As Dominican women ministering in healthcare, education, pastoral care, eco-spirituality and social justice advocacy, we claim our power to nurture mutual relationships that offer healing and courage to a broken world. Vulnerable ourselves, we choose to stand with the poor, to accompany those on the margins and to work toward systems that promote life. Centering our lives in Jesus, we seek to enflesh the Gospel and fulfill our mission statement: “ Called by God into right relationship with all creation and graced by Dominican life and mission, we compassionately preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
