    6. 6. Vision Statement
    7. 7. Each chapter of DYA USAprovides a different response to theneeds of its location. Organized by young adults,with the help of experienced campusministers, chaplains, religious, andother members of the DominicanFamily, our basis is the four pillars ofthe Dominican Life: community,prayer, study, and preaching.
    8. 8. Through prayer and reflection, the chapter searches to continue formation of the individual Dominican. Though unique in their walks of faith, these chapters seek the same goal through their Dominican lives: to live for Jesus Christ. Holding to the pillars, Dominic’s message hasfound a home within this generation in the UnitedStates of America.
    9. 9. Commitment to the Four PillarsLocal DYA USA chapters design their own meetingstructure. The only requirement is that some aspect ofthe “four pillars” be incorporated into each meeting!Local needs and cultures add a great deal of diversity tothe Dominican Young Adult USA experience!
