WHO ARE THE RACINE DOMINICAN ASSOCIATES?
Associates make a formal commitment to share in the charism, mission, and ministries of the Racine Dominican congregation while retaining their own particular lifestyle. They remain financially and legally independent from the congregation.
WHAT ARE THE EXPECTATIONS OF ASSOCIATES?
Associates are invited to share in the Dominican tradition of preaching as they witness with their lives and voices to our public stances and, when, possible, as collaborators in ministry.
Associates join in the life and mission of the congregation through prayer; sharing in ministry; participating in volunteer opportunities, retreats, study days, actions for peace and justice, community gatherings, socials, and feast day celebrations.
An associate is sponsored by an individual sister or sisters, or in some cases, in partnership with an associate who has made a commitment renewal. Sponsors serve as guides and mentors in the associate relationship.
