Charism To share with others the fruits of our contemplation

Motto Be peace, build peace, and preach peace.

Ministry Dominican Sisters of Peace, members of the Order of Preachers, are vowed Catholic Sisters who strive to live a life of peace-making wherever we are and in everything we do.

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.” (John 14:27)  Jesus’ words in John’s Gospel are our prayer for the world. We live and work that all people might experience this peace and share this commitment with Dominican Associates who are lay women and men dedicated to a Dominican way of life.

Together, we follow the Gospel and the tradition of the Roman Catholic Church and work to build a more peaceful world through our ministries, our prayer and our way of life.  In the Dominican tradition, prayer, community, ministry and study are at the heart of our vocation.

The work of the Dominican Sisters and Associates of Peace is expressed in a great number of ministries that are as diverse as our members themselves.   Our Sisters are college professors, teachers, religious educators, lawyers,  health care professionals, artists, spiritual directors, missionaries and advocates for the poor, pastoral care givers, and volunteers just to name a few.  We are particularly committed to a number of ministries that paying close attention to the care of Earth through our ecology centers, education from pre-k to graduate school and adult learning, health care in all its forms,  housing and spiritual life. Even in retirement our sisters continue their ministry through volunteer ministries, prayer and presence.

Location – Our work for peace takes us to 26 states and around the world to missions overseas in Honduras, Nigeria, and Peru.
