Truth Serving Love: A Dominican Charism for the 21st Century

In 2016, the worldwide Dominican family celebrates 800 years since its founding.  The Siena Center is proud to join this celebration with a rich series that draws attention to the central charism of the Order of Preachers: “Veritas.”  Guided by some of the Order’s most prominent leaders of our own day and honoring some of the great figures of Dominican history, we look at the pursuit of truth and the imperative to love in church, higher education, art, science and social action.
