Our community was founded in 1997 under the care of John Cardinal O’Connor. Through the profession of the evangelical counsels, we seek to embody the graces of the new evangelization, which Saint John Paul II announced as “the prelude to a new springtime in the Church.” The spiritual identity of fraternal life in community is shaped by our Dominican spirituality with emphasis on Eucharistic adoration and Marian devotion.
The sisters gather for daily prayer which includes the Holy Mass, the Divine Office, a Eucharistic holy hour, the rosary, renewal of Marian Consecration according to Saint Louis de Montfort, and prayer for vocations. The sisters are contemplative first and foremost. The overflow of this contemplative union with Christ finds encouragement
from Saint Dominic’s missionary zeal, which raises up preachers of truth for the purpose of preaching the Gospel. The sisters engage in the work of Catholic education and hold high expectations of academic and spiritual excellence in the schools where we teach.
The community has eight years of initial formation before final profession. Candidates must have a high school education and be less than 35 years of age.
