Mission Statement

The contemplative life has always held a most important place in the Church.  Saint Dominic, our founder, has established it as an essential part of the Dominican Order.  As Dominican Contemplative Nuns, we have withdrawn from the world in such a way as to embrace everyone in the heart of Christ.  As a community, we are called by God to witness to his love to adoration and prayer, with the Word of God as the center of our lives.  We seek to sustain the Church, to intercede for mankind.  Through our life of prayer and study we bring to fruition God’s loving Word in the World.
