Jean Donovan Community Mission Statement

The Jean Donovan Community is an intentional lay community named after Jean Donovan, the Maryknoll lay missionary who was murdered in El Salvador in 1980. We seek to keep the memory of Jean Donovan and her vocation as a lay minister alive in our community. Our community desires to be a place of hospitality to the larger JST community. We focus on creating and maintaining a living environment that provides space for open dialogue, creativity, laughter, comfort, prayer and reflection. Together we strive to support one another personally, spiritually, and communally.
