Youth and Young Adult Ministry
Connecting our youth and young adults to the Dominican tradition of preaching

Young Adults

Our Youth and Young Adult Ministry connects today's youth and young adults from the five boroughs of New York City and beyond to the Dominican tradition of preaching as well as to each participant's own call to preach.

Young people are encouraged to use their God-given gifts to "preach using the pulpit of their lives."

Programs include retreats, days of prayer, service opportunities, and various occasions to join with the Sisters in our Motherhouse for prayer, service, and fun!
