Raised So Far!
Spreading the Gospel with YOUR Support
What is D+E+I?
The Dominican Ecclesial Institute, or D+E+I, is a Dominican ministry of the Province of St. Albert the Great, established as a collaborative work of the Dominican Friars, the Laity, and the Archdiocese of Santa Fe and located at the Catholic Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Who is D+E+I for?
The brief answer is “Everyone”! D+E+I exists to fill a need and that is the continuing Christian faith formation of adults. A short time ago D+E+I committed to dynamically engage younger generations, a demographic made up of Millennials, Generation Y, and Generation X.
What does D+E+I do?
D+E+I evangelizes by making Jesus known in our community through fostering adult Christian faith formation. This is done by enabling educational opportunities, encouraging public discourse, and promoting theological research and writing.
What are some examples?
Missions: Our most recent Mission was the Lenten Mission at Holy Rosary Parish; In The Tender Mercy of Our God.
D+E+I Dialogues: Our last Dialogue was the Annual Aquinas Lecture [1/2018], entitled What is Sex For?
Book Club: Meeting monthly, the Book Club met in April to watch the movie, The Way.
DISCOURSE: The monthly magazine published by D+E+I with original and syndicated content.
What about examples for Younger Generations?
ABQ Theology on Tap: Discussions about the “why” questions in our faith, held in a public forum, a pub.
C2 [Catholic Connect]: Created, maintained, and promoted in collaboration with the Archdiocesan Youth & Young Adult Ministry and the Norbertine community, C2 is an online social community providing a Catholic social media platform to communicate.
D+E+I Connect: Our soon to be released app.
What is Spreading Our Wings?
Spreading Our Wings is the name of our first coordinated multi-channel fundraising campaign. In its third decade D+E+I must spread its wings by making its tent bigger to fully engage younger generations. D+E+I receives no financial support from the Archdiocese of Santa Fe or from the Province and so it is critically important for D+E+I to seek out support from potential new supporters.
How can you help?
You can help today by donating to D+E+I. This can be a donation of Time, Talent, or Treasure. If you are really interested, become a member and participate in the many offerings from D+E+I throughout the year. If you have time, D+E+I needs volunteers to help offset operational expenses.

Our goal for this campaign is $25k by June 30, 2018. D+E+I needs YOUR support; will you consider a one-time or monthly donation to D+E+I today?
