To Praise To Bless To Preach


Who We Are

MISSION STATEMENT: We, the Houston Dominican Sisters, publicly commit ourselves to study and address the crucial justice issues of our times. We assume the risks in inherent in preaching and teaching the Gospel. We will work to transform social structures which oppress the powerless, ministering with them in our common struggle to remain faithful to the Word of God. (1991)


Thank you for considering a gift to the Dominican Sisters of Houston! A gift to our Partners in Mission Annual Fund Campaign supports our active ministries in teaching and school administration, social work, justice advocacy, and campus and parish ministry. Annual Fund gifts also help care for our retired sisters who have lived their lives in service to others. Gifts to our Guatemalan mission school help make certain that our impoverished students receive a good Catholic education. We are so grateful to our wonderful donors who give annually. Every gift makes a difference and ensures the success of our mission. Thank you for supporting the Dominican Sisters of Houston. May God bless you, heal you and fill you with light.
