Dominicans Collaborating

In April of 2011 our congregation gathered for a significant direction setting “Chapter” during which time we trusted that God, “Fire of Love,” was “Creating Us Anew.”  We proclaimed that “we commit ourselves to living boldly together into the next five years.”   

One of the ways we choose to live boldly is to “dream globally and collaborate intentionally.” This October members of 20 congregations of Dominican Sisters and Associates will gather for a convocation entitled, Edgewalkers: Unfolding the Fertile Unknown. About 500 Dominicans will study, pray, and celebrate our life and mission and step into the future with hope.

I have the privilege of being a part of the planning for this historic convocation. It is exciting to work with others from various congregations. The Spirit is alive in the creation of this venture.

In collaboration Dominicans make a difference in our world. I am inspired and strengthened by  many committed women. Dominican life is a glass more than half full!   

I look forward to sharing what happened at the convocation in my October blog.
