Purpose and Nature of the Congregation

ACCORDING TO OUR CONSTITUTIONS

Our Congregation belongs to the large religious family founded by Saint Dominic. The Order of Preachers “has been established, from the beginning, for the purpose of preaching and the salvation of souls” (Primitive Constitution of the Order of Preachers, Prologue). Thus, the Sisters dedicate themselves to the fulfillment of the apostolic tasks of the Church in imitation of Christ who announced the Kingdom of God to the people.(Constitutions no. 3)

As part of the Dominican Order, the Congregation of the Sisters of Saint Dominic accept as its purpose the proclamation of the truth of the Gospel to those in greatest need (Luke 4:18; 3:31). In this purpose, our Congregation reflects Christ who was sent to the poor and those in need.
(Constitutions no. 4)

Depending on particular needs, our Congregation engages in
•  teaching the truth of the Gospel
•  raising the level of education and culture
•  bringing aid to the suffering
so as to, in union with the Church in diverse circumstances, serve the people by helping them on their way to salvation in Catholic and missionary countries. (Constitutions n. 5)
