Peace and blessing from fr jim marchionda, op and sr ann willits, op
We are grateful for your interest in considering a Dominican Parish Mission. The following pages contain general descriptions and options available to a parish. Adaptations can be easily made. Final details can be worked out by phone or through email correspondence once a mission is scheduled and confirmed.
For Ordinary Time missions, we are booked approximately 1 to 2 years in advance. For Lenten missions, we are usually booked 3 to 4 years in advance. However, we also schedule PRE-Lenten missions as well as Easter Season missions, which can be very powerful.
Generally, a mission begins with the weekend schedule of liturgies and concludes on Tuesday or Wednesday night, as determined by the parish.
Our normal stipend request is for $3,500.00 (which we split between our communities). Additional costs include flight fares or mileage, meals, room and board while we are with you, and approximately $100.00-150.00 in choral music expenses related to the closing prayer concert. The choir music purchase from World Library Publications remains the property of the parish following the mission.
If our stipend request is more than a parish can manage, we are very willing to discuss a reduced amount so as to accommodate each parish according to its means. Please do not hesitate to discuss this with us.
Again, we thank you for your inquiry and will hope to hear from you.
Blessings and peace, fr jim & sr ann
