Peace in a Time of Pandemic

In these uncertain times, many of us need a break. From bad news, from fake news, from close quarters and daily briefings.
We need a break too. So here are a group of videos, prayers, and blogs that you can use to travel to our ministries around the country, to beautiful spaces in nature, to a calmer place in your heart and your spirit.
As St. Dominic responded to the unique needs of his times, we minister to the needs of our day. Just click on the resource that you would like to view.
More details are on the videos are shown below.
