Pioneering Women of the Past, Innovators Shaping the Future

In February 1822, the first women in the United States became part of the world-wide Dominican mission. In the 200 years since, Dominican Women the United States have faithfully ministered to God’s people by preaching the truth, proclaiming the joy of the Gospel, and following the example of our founder Saint Dominic.

Please join us as we celebrate all that has been accomplished in the past, all that Dominicans are called to in the present, and all that God desires for us into the future.
