Gospel Witness

Gospel Witness

We Dominican Sisters of Hope Preach the Gospel to our world.  In communion with all creation, we commit our lives to the transforming power of Hope.

The mandates of the Preaching Promoters are to promote opportunities for ongoing study and reflection in preparation for preaching the Gospel to our world.

Personal and Communal Response

Our religious life is a personal and communal response to God’s loving presence in our lives, and God’s call to holiness. As Dominican women religious we live a publicly vowed life of obedience, poverty and chastity. We witness the love of God for each person to one another and to the world through our permanent commitment.


We freely commit ourselves by obedience to listen, discern and respond to God’s will as revealed in Sacred Scripture, in the needs of the world and in the circumstances, events and persons in our daily lives. We give witness to Gospel poverty by a life of simplicity and interdependence with all peoples and the whole of creation. In response to God’s love we choose celibate chastity, a gift from our Creator. We experience the gift of chastity as a means to a full life of intimacy with God and with each other.

We collaborate with Dominican Preaching Promoters.
