Columbus, OH – The Dominican Sisters of Peace sponsor primary and secondary schools in Ohio, New York, Louisiana, and Tennessee. It is our goal at each of these schools to provide not just an outstanding education, but a solid grounding in our Catholic faith and in the four pillars of our Dominican life: prayer, study, community, and service.
Following the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, our Congregation responded to support the efforts of student activists by encouraging our own schools to honor the lives lost and to encourage Congress to enact laws to ensure gun safety. The Social Justice team created a guide to help schools plan and publicize events at each location. The Congregation also shared this guide with other Dominican congregations across the country.
Columbus, OH – The Dominican Sisters of Peace have named a new Justice Promoter, Sr. Barbara Kane, OP.
In her new position, Sr. Barb will promote Justice, Peace, and the Integrity of Creation (JCIP) through education, advocacy and social action. One of her first major projects will be working with Sisters and Associates to organize a congregational presence at the March 24 ‘March for Our Lives,’ a student-led demonstration to urge sensible gun control.
“For the past six years, the Dominican Sisters International has been sending sisters to participate in the United Nation’s Commission on the Status of Women. This commission invites the Thinkers-Shakers-and-Doers to work together and strengthen their relationship to make our society a better place for all, especially for both women and girls. The theme for this year is ‘Empowering Rural Women and Girls.’”
