dominican sisters of Hope
We 100+ Catholic Dominican Sisters have committed our lives 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 thirteen states and our congregational offices are at Mariandale in Ossining, NY.
We minister in a variety of unique ways, including community organizing, social work, education, environmental advocacy, and retreat ministry at Mariandale, among others.
We can’t wait to share with you the ways that we bring Hope to it all.
Sister Andrea Jurewicz
“I can’t imagine how people can be so insensitive to the needs of the planet and each other. I am upset even during my contemplative view– my greatest distraction is what’s going on with society and healthcare and all of that. I pray. If there was something that we all could do somehow to make people realize the dangers that are ahead of us. Calamity.
All I can say is, We’re supposed to be the stewards of the planet and each other, that’s what God put us here for. Instead we’re destroying the planet and our society.
So, we have to be involved. We can’t just look at the television and say ‘how sad’ and be apathetic about what’s going on. We can’t wait for someone else to do it. The fact that we’re here now, we have a responsibility. It should be a pleasure not a chore.”
“We have a responsibility to each other. And not only to those immediately around us. We have a responsibility as members of a community: our family, our congregation or parish, our town, our world.”
