In 1995, we committed our lives to the transforming power of Hope.
At the time, we didn’t know what the future would hold. But we knew that we wanted to bring Hope to the world, to live it everyday, and to recognize and name it among us.
“When we birthed Hope, we stepped off without an idea of what was going to happen,” says Sister Catherine Walsh, who became Hope’s first prioress. “We knew that we were going forward to bring hope and to be hope. However that played out would be alright with us.”
Today, we’re still committed to this core mission. In celebration of the “birthday” of the Dominican Sisters of Hope, we’re featuring wisdom from our sisters on where and how they find Hope in their midst. We know that our world needs Hope, maybe more than ever. Here’s to living it, being it, recognizing it, and inspiring it.
Where Do We Find Hope?
“My hope lies in the belief that the younger generation will do it better.”
-Sister Mary Alice Hannan
