The Dominican Family - Unity in Diversity

I had the privilege of spending Sunday morning with a group of Lay Dominicans. They represented three different areas in Trinidad.  We spent the time together reflecting on our common Dominican heritage of study, common life, prayer and service.  I am always amazed at the involvement of our non vowed members in ministry and service to the community.  This group was no different.

They all shared of the way they tried to be faithful to the Dominican way in the midst of their work and family commitments.  They blessed, praised, and preached the Gospel in their various ministries whether as teachers, taxi drivers, housewives, or lay ministers.  It made me realize what a blessing being called to Religious life as a single celibate person can be…well, most times!  In addition, I felt really grateful for our Dominican Family especially for the diverse ways a person, male or female, married or single can commit to becoming a member.

For you who do not know, in addition to the Dominican Laity, The Dominican Family also has members who are priests, religious sisters and brothers, associates and volunteers.

Consider then whether God might be calling you to follow us in the way of St. Dominic and give us a shout!
