Charism is the distinct spirit that describes the Sisters of St. Dominic of Amityville. Like the mission and traditions, our Charism dates back to when St. Dominic called us to know, love, and follow Christ.
If all records ceased to exist, the Charism of the Sisters of St. Dominic could be expressed beautifully by the living testimony of each member of the Congregation. Each life is a testament to prayer, ministry, community, and study.
In accord with the goal affirmed on May 19, 1974, the Sisters are called to be signs of joy and hope; to commit themselves to the Gospel; to deepen their lives of prayer; to search for Truth, and to minister to the people of God.
On December 5, 2015, the Congregation affirmed two elements of their Dominican Mission and Charism that will guide their future.
