Dominican Sisters of Springfield

We believe it is our responsibility as Christians to speak out for justice. One of the ways we do this at a congregational level is by taking a corporate stance.

Corporate stances are approved only after all members of the congregation have had an opportunity to thoroughly investigate an issue and arrived at a consensus. We have the opportunity to adopt corporate stances at our General Assembly held annually.

Our Corporate Stances

Opposition to Human Trafficking
Building on our Consistent Ethic of Life stance that “we reverence the sacredness of life and address injustice in a spirit of respect, compassion and solidarity, ” we, the Dominican Sisters of Springfield, Illinois, oppose the trafficking of all persons, especially that of women and children. We will continue to educate ourselves. We will support those efforts that work toward ending this unconscionable abuse.

Our commitment fundamentally requires a conversion of heart and compels us to address any injustice that diminishes the community of life.
