A Unique Way to Associate with the Dominican Sisters The Associates are a diverse group of (lay)people rooted in the Dominican charism; they gather with the Dominican Sisters of Hope as a faith community for mutual spiritual bonding, growth, nourishment, support, and empowerment.
Welcome to ophope.org!
We are the Dominican Sisters of Hope: 160+ Catholic Dominican sisters who are committed to living and preaching the gospel message of hope. Founded in 1995 from three communities in Newburgh, NY, Fall River, MA, and Ossining, NY, we now live in fifteen states and Puerto Rico where we serve largely in justice, social, healthcare, and education ministries. Always dynamic, we are everything from Executive Directors of homeless shelters to physical education teachers to published authors. We’re excited to share with you the ways we bring hope to it all.
