PRAYER REQUESTS

Education

 

As itinerant preachers, we serve wherever we are sent.  We use our gifts for the preaching mission through evangelizing, educating, and promoting peace and justice.  The charism of our Congregation calls us to special concern for the young, the poor, and the vulnerable of our world.  Each of us plays a vital role in the various forms of our preaching mission:  the arts, education and pastoral work, social service and health care, and Congregational and prayer ministries.

“Make the preaching of the Good News your life’s work, in thoroughgoing service.” -- 2 Timothy 4:5

Vision of Hope Mission
The Dominican Sisters Vision of Hope operates solely to provide quality, affordable Catholic education for children of their inner-city elementary schools and to ensure a vibrant future for these schools and the communities they serve.  

Vision of Hope Story
Through a robust tuition assistance program, Vision of Hope is strengthening and sustaining Catholic education for the children of these schools and the communities they serve.  Under the umbrella of the Dominican Sisters Vision of Hope each school has a development director responsible for generating broad-based community support. Thanks to the generosity of loyal donors, Vision of Hope currently has a permanent endowment and has distributed over $ 9.6 million to the schools, including $5.4 million in tuition assistance, since 2004 when distributions began.
