Who We Are
We are a partnership of people committed to passing on and integrating the Dominican charism into our lives. We are lay people. We are women and men religious. We are community members. We are Today’s youth and Tomorrow’s leaders. We believe that we are All called to Preach, We are All called to Be Leaders in our Church and We are All called to Live and Pass On the Good News.
The Dominican Youth Movement USA connects today’s youth and young adults to the Dominican tradition of preaching and the participant’s own call to preach. Through our programs and workshops that offer a time, place, and context for establishing impactful relations, we build faith and strengthen our young people’s commitment to God, community, family, preaching, social, justice and the Dominican Order.
The Dominican Youth Movement USA reinforces and expands the Dominican Charism to Christian youth and young adults; creating future leaders of the Church who will preach the Good News as they share, explore, and integrate their faith with family, community and the world.
At the core of the Dominican Life are the Dominican values of prayer, study, community, and ministry. The Dominican Youth Movement USA guides our youth and young adults through our values of:
Prayer- the heart of a spiritual life
Study-understanding that truth is never complete and there is always more to know and understand
Community– staying connected to God, our individual lives and the world around us
Ministry– integrating a life of service with a life of faith, preaching through word and action
