We are a newly founded (2009) community of Dominican Sisters who are faithful to the magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church. As vowed members, we strive to witness the Gospel joyfully in our local communities, through prayer and study and through our various apostolates in education.
Integral to our vowed life is our commitment to the search for Veritas - Truth. In imitation of our holy Father Dominic, we seek to live a more radical way of proclaiming the Gospel message.
Dominic and his followers were committed to prayer and intensive study before they could preach the message of truth to others. In the footsteps of Saint Dominic, we continue to “give to others the fruits of our contemplation.” Our Dominican tradition requires continuous study, fervent prayer, living in community, and service to others.
As Dominican Sisters in the 21st century, we encourage today’s women to join us to share their gifts and talents, and to become our partners in this great adventure of proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ.
The Consecrated Life, deeply rooted in the example and teaching of Christ the Lord, is a gift of God the Father to his Church through the Holy Spirit. By the profession of the evangelical counsels the characteristic features of Jesus — the chaste, poor and obedient one — are made constantly "visible" in the midst of the world and the eyes of the faithful are directed towards the mystery of the Kingdom of God already at work in history, even as it awaits its full realization in heaven.
In every age there have been men and women who, obedient to the Father's call and to the prompting of the Spirit, have chosen this special way of following Christ, in order to devote themselves to him with an "undivided" heart (cf. 1 Cor 7:34). Like the Apostles, they too have left everything behind in order to be with Christ and to put themselves, as he did, at the service of God and their brothers and sisters. In this way, through the many charisms of spiritual and apostolic life bestowed on them by the Holy Spirit, they have helped to make the mystery and mission of the Church shine forth, and in doing so have contributed to the renewal of society.
