“To love God is something greater than to know Him.” –St. Thomas Aquinas
To pray is to study and to study is to pray….these are words that are part of what it means to live the Dominican Mission. Your academics aren’t just for the sake of learning but it is all for the sake of your growth of mind and heart.
Each spring a select group of Caldwell students are chosen to participate in the national Sister Story project in conjunction with St. Catherine University in Minnesota. The students are paired with Dominican sisters in order to create an oral history project through film, blog reflections, creative projects, and most importantly, build relationships with one another! The filmed interviews are then part of the Sister Story archives.
“Sister Story is the ongoing story of National Catholic Sisters Week, a national campaign aimed at broadening awareness of Catholic sisters. Our intention is to demystify religious life – the vows of poverty, celibacy and obedience, the experience of living in community, the desire to belong totally to God – by sharing the stories of Catholic sisters. We aim to connect sisters with young women and to share their impressions in an authentic, first-person 20-something voice.” https://www.sisterstory.org/
