Our Catholic Values

 

The Dominican Ecclesial Institute, D+E+I, is a Catholic teaching ministry, an educational outreach of the Dominican Friars of the Province of St. Albert the Great. D+E+I is governed by a Board of Directors composed of clergy, religious, and the laity and with seats reserved for appointment by the Archbishop of Santa Fe and the Prior Provincial of the Province of St. Albert the Great. Guided by the Dominican charism; Laudere, Benedicere, Praedicare D+E+I has, for over 20 years, been an active participant in the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, working in collaboration with Dominicans, Archdiocesan ministries and offices, and Catholic parishes and organizations to foster adult Christian faith formation.

In the Dominican itinerant tradition, D+E+I has developed a well regarded and reputable model of teaching to the extent that many of our programs are accredited by the Archdiocese of Santa Fe for continuing education credit. Our speakers are Catholics in Good Standing with the Catholic Church and are required to follow the regulations set forth by the Archdiocese of Santa Fe for approval accompanied by background checks and additional statements of affirmation by their superiors. D+E+I works continuously to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ, always open to new forms of communication in its effort. D+E+I is committed to the Archdiocese of Santa Fe and the Catholic community. The Archdiocese of Santa Fe is our home and the Catholic community is our family and we are accountable to each other, our donors and benefactors, and to you.
