Support Back to School Ministries

school children and sister

Dear Friends,

For me the “new year” really starts when summer ends and children return to school. During this busy season, we turn to you to support our Back to School Ministries appeal. Help us begin the year with joyful purpose, sustaining our educational mission in schools, parishes, prisons and at our Motherhouse.  

Back to School contributions strengthen our Dominican identity in Catholic schools as we work alongside lay staff in Northern and Southern California and Mexico. Your resources allow 235 adults enrolled in our Las Casas English as a Second Language program to improve their language skills and achieve career goals. Your gifts connect S. Mary Sean Hodges to more than 10,000 inmates and prisoners seeking to return to society by completing academic and life skills courses in her Partnership for Re-Entry program

Your gifts also assist our three young sisters as they complete their studies and enter Dominican ministries in Mexico and the US. At our Motherhouse, your contributions fund popular retreat programs, seminars and workshops open to the community. 

This is the face of our educational mission today – one that depends on your continuing support!  


You may also mail your gift to:

With every blessing,
