I am Sister Pat Farrell, OP, the Executive Director of the Dominican Sisters Conference (http://dominicansistersconference.org). Dominicans are known as the Order of Preachers – that’s what the OP stands for – and this Dominican charism of Preaching is very important to us. We find many ways to preach; St. Francis of Assisi reminds us, “Preach always. When necessary use words.” On this site you will find preaching through reflections, poetry, photography, and other images.
I am a Dominican Sister of San Rafael (http://sanrafaelop.org) living in River Forest, IL, in close proximity to many other Dominican Sisters of various congregations. The work of the Conference it to bring the sisters from 19 different congregations in collaboration. In the words of our Mission Statement:
The Dominican Sisters Conference unites the sisters and associates of the U.S. Dominican Congregations in their mission to preach the Gospel of Jesus, standing as a clear voice for truth, justice, and peace.
