We Dominican women religious, called to be signs of joy and hope, commit ourselves to incarnating the Gospel, deepening our life of prayer, searching for Truth, discerning the needs of the Church and ministering to the people of God.
Heart to Heart Ministry is a reflection of this mission statement by inviting people to participate in spiritual programs …heart to heart.
