BECOMING DOMINICAN

insignia

 

LEVELS OF PARTICIPATION

God's invitation to become an Associate is a gift. You are invited to join Sparkill's vowed members and other Associates in prayer, service and presence, living these values within your own vocation as a single, married or ordained individual. This bonding is an extention of ourselves to one another and to those we serve. When we celebrate and pray together, we are given the privilege of contemplating the great wonders of God's love.

In sharing the mission and charism of the Sparkill Dominicans, the level of participation may vary based on the Associate's lifestyle, geographical location and ministry. Participation may include:

SPIRITUAL

Active participation in congregational and local community liturgies, retreats, days of recollection, prayer groups or simply sharing in the prayer ministry of the congregation.

MINISTERIAL

Sharing of gifts and talents, as well as professional expertise through volunteering, wherever and whenever this is mutually feasible.

SOCIAL

Participation in congregational celebrations, workshops and seminars, offering and receiving hospitality and participating in local community gatherings.
