values

Steeped in Dominican tradition, Dominican Volunteers USA holds these core values as foundational:

Preaching    Our lives preach God’s great compassion for all, especially those who are the most vulnerable among us. Our preaching is always on the side of justice, peace and reconciliation.

Community    Our relationships in community, in ministry and within the Dominican Family are mutual, diverse, inclusive and intergenerational.

Prayer    Our prayer, whether communal, individual or contemplative, is the heart of our Dominican Life.

Study    Our study enables us to search out the truth in our times, especially the issues that affect those we serve.

Ministry    Our ministry, time and talent freely given, centers of love of God and love of neighbor.
