The Dominican Charism Initiative or DCI




The Dominican Charism Initiative or DCI was launched in the context of a Charism Dialogue, February 21-23, at the Motherhouse of the Houston Dominican Sisters. This is an evolution of the project, Futuring Dominican Charism for Mission, Sisters and Lay Partners Togetherfunded by the GHR Foundation.


Twenty-eight Dominican sisters and lay partners engaged in energetic dialogue and creative planning over the 3 days. The participants included educators, theologians, formators, charism animators, associate directors, the Dominican Association of Secondary Schools (DASS), the Dominican Youth Movement (DYM) and 3 Dominican Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart from Zimbabwe, Zambia and Kenya and their Congregational Prioress from England.
