DSI is an international movement among Dominican Sisters of the Apostolic life, founded in Rome on May 1995 by 80 Prioresses Generals.
NOW WE ARE 24.600 DOMINICAN SISTERS, 151 Congregations, IN 110 COUNTRIES.
The charism of Saint Dominic de Guzman: Prayer, study, community and preaching are the four pillars of the different ministries. At the first meeting of DSI, they defined its four goals:
1 - To support one another in living out the Dominican charism and to claim and promote our identity as women preachers;
2 - To facilitate communication and networking among Dominicans at both regional and international levels;
3 - To foster a more compassionate world order through the promotion of peace and justice, integrity of creation and human rights, especially those of women;
4 - To explore and foster collaborative initiatives among the Dominican Family.
