Join the Mission

A message from Sister Kathleen Anne Tait regarding the global coronavirus pandemic and the wellbeing of our sisters.

For now, all our sisters are free of Coronavirus. No Springfield Dominican sister in the U.S. or in Peru has yet reported symptoms. We hope that you and yours are also faring well at this unprecedented time. Follow updates about our sisters' health and our response to the crisis here.

This month is one of three times a year we ask our friends to support our response to God's mission with a gift. I know that you may have been—as we have been—adversely impacted by the economic volatility affecting the world financial markets.

If it is possible for you to make a donation, we will humbly and gratefully receive it. If it is not possible for you at this time, please know your prayer and friendship mean Immeasurably more to us than your ability to contribute. Please look after your needs and stay healthy and safe!

You are invited to Join the Mission!

Deepen that impact with a gift today!

What we do

Our sisters make the world a better place every day by bringing God's healing, creative, and inspiring Word wherever they go: into schools and parishes, counseling centers, hospitals, and city streets. Follow the links to learn more.

Wisdom from Our Donors

I think of money as energy. It has to circulate, it has to go out there. Whatever you put out comes back to you. The more you give the more you receive. It is how life functions, how the universe functions, and I have to live that.

— Nancy Rita Kaz

“It gives me joy to be able to help care for the sisters who gave me so much during my growing-up years.”

— Nancy Armstrong

“The good work of the church was mostly done by the women of the church. I own my faith today to the sisters who provided me with that early faith formation.”
