Dominican Center is a Heart Center

Dear Friends,

Here at Dominican Center Marywood we lean into the coming days before Advent begins, and recognize the power and necessity of a Holy pause. May you allow for an opening into the quiet spaces of your heart as you make time to rest and reconnect with family, friends and those who give meaning to your life experiences.

For many of us, the months of November and December bring with them a memory of loss and grief for what was or what might have been. Holidays can provide a stressful combination of mixed emotions. I find such solace in Jan Richardson’s “Blessing in the Chaos”, and hope that you are met with a sense of contentment and ease throughout the coming “holy” days.

Please know how grateful we are that you have joined us in our programs, retreats and prayer experiences this past year, we value your presence and participation!

In-joy, Mindy

Blessing in the Chaos

To all that is chaotic
in you,
let there come silence.

 Jan Richardson


At Dominican Center, people come to explore the interconnectedness of Creation and humanity and the boundlessness of God’s love.
Allow yourself to be transformed wholly and holy. Come inside.
