See the house built of generosity and hope!
We thought it couldn't happen.
The dream of opening a new ministry for and with young adult women was dashed when the building we hoped to use was suddenly unavailable to us.
Seemingly, it was all over. Until it wasn't!
See what happens when dreams—God's dream and our dream—flow together. Enjoy this gallery of photos about Cor Unum House—being built of generosity and hope!
“The Christian of today must gather from the body all the spiritual power it contains…this means to live from the center of the heart where love grows and to reach out to the world with faith, hope, and trust in God’s incarnate presence.”
–Sister Ilia Delio, OSF
What is Cor Unum?
Cor Unum is a ministry
of the Dominican Sisters of Springfield to encourage and support young adult women who want ot deepen their spiritual lives, be of service, and make change for a better world.
The Latin phrase Cor Unum, meaning “One Heart,” was chosen with the unique needs of young adult women in mind.
