Dominican Sisters Our Lady of the Springs of Bridgeport
The charism of the Dominican Order inspired the framework for our 800-year-old mission in the Church. St. Dominic responded to the needs of his time, recognizing heresies that could be countered only by knowledge of the Real Truth and delivery of this Truth by holy preachers. The Dominican motto, VERITAS (Truth) is as essential today as it was in the 13th century. The call for a new evangelization by Pope John Paul II, articulated again by Pope Benedict XVI, requires fidelity to VERITAS.
