We live according to Dominican Spirituality, which is based on prayer, study, preaching and apostolate. We live this spirituality with the special emphasis that Fr. John Joseph Lataste O.P. gave to the Church. After preaching a retreat to women in prison he recognized the power of grace in their conversion and realized that God can make the greatest saints from the greatest sinners. We, too, believe in the power of grace and accept women to our community no matter what their past has been, as long as they have truly turned to God and have given proof of it. From this belief we take our name, The Community of the Resurrection. From conversion emerges new life.
