Dominican Sisters,
Immaculate Conception Province

Founded in 1861, we spread God's Kingdom through education, evangelization, and aid to the suffering. We are Marian, Eucharistic, and faithful to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. We further follow the spirituality of St. Dominic to preach for the salvation of souls.
