Learn more about the Dominican Associate Program

In the 2,000-year history of the church, no one ever came to a vocation without someone to lead them to Christ.

If you’ve recognized yourself on one of these five paths, the next step is talking with a friend, a trusted spiritual guide, or a vocation minister. Trust the movement of God’s spirit within you and do not be afraid.

If you would like support from us, we are happy to help. Please contact Sister Teresa Marron at 217.787.0481, or srteresa@spdom.org.
