As Dominican Center emerges anew, it does so with greater wisdom.

We remain grounded in Dominican roots that guide us to pause and contemplate, stilling the uncertainty surrounding us. We do this resting in God's compassionate love while breathing in trust and breathing out hope.

We know the gifts of Dominican Center rest on serving the community by providing programs, retreats, and experiences that help shape one's spiritual foundation that transforms into action and service. We lean into the mission with reimagination and creativity, always attuning our ear to the holy and guided by more than a quarter-century of service.

As we recreate, we are moving into the present moment with a renewed conviction that our pruning makes room for new growth that bears much fruit. We hope that those who have been transformed by Dominican Center's offerings and experiences continue to move with us through this transition and support us in our replanting. We also look forward to new and diverse ways of facilitating intensives, programs, and retreats so that those distant from us and yearning for opportunities to participate may now do so.

It is our mission to foster transformation and growth of persons, communities, and organizations through prayer, learning, and collaboration in an inclusive, hospitable environment. We continue to be committed to this purpose and we look forward to the unfolding of its expression.
