Corporate Stances

Our commitment to the mission of Dominic, to proclaim God’s Word in our world, calls us to speak the truth as a congregation on issues of human rights, social justice, non-violence, and peace. Often, our public witness to these issues is through a corporate stance: a position agreed upon by the Congregation which reflects our passion regarding these critical issues of our times. Corporate stances are not adopted lightly. We vote upon these issues after prayer, study, reflection and discussion.
