We know that racism raises its ugly head in our lives in many ways. The Dominican Institute for the Arts seeks to help the Order and LCWR further our work of rooting out Racism. We invite all Dominican Youth, Young Adults and all the Dominican Family as well as those they minister with to submit your personal artwork, videos, poetry, to join with us in one voice for this on our website and beyond. Work must be original and if a YouTube or Vimeo it must abide by copyright laws. We reserve the right to choose what appears on our website. Let us know in your email your connection to the Dominican Family. To submit your work and support this preaching in action, please send it or the links to email@example.com.
Associates and Laity
We know there are more artists in your congregation that we do not have as members. Many do not recognize they are artists though they design cards, logos, dance, are musicians, do photography, etc. They often need the personal encouragement of leadership to realize the gift they are and have. We know you want to promote their work as well. So kindly share this membership information for the Dominican Institute for the Arts. Even if they cannot attend our gatherings, membership offers them a web page and the encouragement of belonging to a group beyond themselves. We thank you for the encouragement of your members. Here is the membership brochure and form.

The new Associates are Carmen McCrink, Michael Provitera, Christopher (Kit) Starratt, and Gerene (Gerry) Starratt.
On November 16, 2016, the Dominican Sisters of Sparkill welcomed two new Associates to their congregation at a commitment ceremony in New York. The new Associates, Diane Dunne and Margaret Hayes, each made one-year commitments with the Dominican Sisters. Read article

More events from the Dominican Youth Movement USA: This past weekend fifteen students from St. Agnes Academic HS, College Point; Albertus Magnus HS in Rockland County; and St. John the Baptist HS., West Islip came to St. John the Baptist HS to begin a weekend of prayer, study, and the forming of community. These students were the latest group who attended one of our youth preaching workshops. They learned how to bring to life their baptismal call to “preach the Good News” by using the gifts and talents that have been given to them by our loving God.
