The Dominican Sisters of Houston is a Catholic community of women whose mission is "to publicly commit ourselves to study and address the crucial justice issues of our times." The sisters' active ministries include teaching and school administration, prayer, campus ministry, parish ministry and others.

This stained glass window is located in the chapel of St. Dominic Villa on the motherhouse grounds.  The design depicts followers of Saint Dominic; both men and women, through the centuries.  Those with facial features represent followers canonized by the Church while the remainder repesent all Dominicans, religious and laity, preachers of Truth, who have entered and partnered in the mission.

Annual Fund

In September we kicked off our 2013-2014 Partners in Mission Annual Fund Campaign.  We are so grateful to our wonderful donors who gave to the Annual Fund last year and ask that you prayerfully consider giving this year.  Gifts to our Annual Fund support the sisters' active ministries in teaching and school administration, social work, justice advocacy, and campus and parish ministry.  Every gift makes a difference and ensures the success of our mission.  Thank you for supporting the Dominican Sisters of Houston.  May God bless you, heal you and fill you with light.
