Our Mission & A Closer Look At How We Serve

The Dominican Sisters of Peace number nearly 325 vowed Sisters and 200 Associates (volunteer lay people in mission) and are part of the worldwide Order of Preachers, sometimes known as the Dominican Order. We serve God’s people in many ways, including education, health care, spirituality, pastoral care, prison ministry, the arts, and care of creation, among others. The Gospel message of love and compassion lead us to be concerned about peace and justice issues, including comprehensive immigration reform, sensible gun control, alternatives to the death penalty, and advocacy against human trafficking among others.

How We Preach:

Through Education, Justice & Advocacy

Dominican Sisters of Peace preach by building peace – preventing physical, economic and environmental violence for the marginalized, including women, children and immigrants.

It Really Does Take A Village

The founding congregations of the Dominican Sisters of Peace established more than 33 institutions that continue to operate today. Some are financially independent and others continue to be supported by the Dominican Sisters of Peace. Many Dominican Sisters of Peace and numerous Associates of the congregation serve in these institutions. Other serve in parish or other diocesan ministries, other nonprofit organizations, in education, and even in the private sector. Almost 130 Sisters volunteer with our own institutions and countless others. Contributions to the Sisters’ Ministry Fund enable the continued ministry of our Sisters in all these areas.
