The Dominican Sisters of Peace and our Associates warmly welcome you to join us along a journey toward a more peaceful, equitable and just tomorrow.
In keeping with the four pillars of the Dominican Charism, Prayer, Study, Community and Service, our Sisters around the world show our love of God through our service to God’s people. Our multi-cultural, multi-generational Congregation serves in 27 dioceses across the United States and in Nigeria.
As members of the worldwide Order of Preachers, we share the Gospel of Christ’s peace through our words and through our lives.
The Dominican Sisters of Peace find joy in our daily walk with God and with our community, in the work we do for God’s people, and in the companions who share their time and talents with our ministries.
Dominican Associates are lay people who work and walk with the Dominican Sisters of Peace in their lives of prayer, study and ministry to God’s people.
Anyone with a heart for peace can become a Dominican Associate… learn how!
Single, Catholic women aged 18-45 will have the opportunity to spend time with the Dominican Sisters of Peace to talk about your own vocation, ask questions about discernment and religious life and meet our sisters by joining us for prayer, meals, presentations, conversation, and fun.
The Order of Preachers, abbreviated OP, is also known as the Dominicans, after our founder, St. Dominic. The Dominicans were the first itinerant order, leaving the monastery to preach the truth of the gospel and Christ’s love.
The first Dominican institution was a convent in the French city of Prouille. The order was founded in 1215 in Toulouse, France.
The first Dominican women religious in America were our foremothers, the Dominican Sisters of St. Catharine, founded in 1822 in Kentucky.
Are you looking for something more?
We can help you recognize God’s call in your life.
We all start at a different place in the journey, but we’ve all been where you are today.
We are committed to sharing the knowledge and resources to help you find your way. Let’s walk together.
We are grateful to Suzanne Wong for her image of Signadou. Signadou (from the French, meaning ‘sign of God’) is the site in Fanjeaux, Southern France, where St Dominic’s vision for the Dominican Order began to unfold. We are blessed by Suzanne’s preaching.
