Our greatest goal is to love God and love our neighbor. As Dominicans our focus is the salvation of souls and everything we do is oriented around that central mission.
We pray the Office of Readings, Morning Prayer, Daytime Prayer, Evening Prayer, and Night Prayer. We nourish ourselves with the gift of the Holy Eucharist.
Contemplation typically happens during prayer, but for Dominicans, study is also a type of prayer where we seek Truth, Veritas, who is Jesus Christ Himself.
We pray together, eat together, and recreate together. Together we grow in our love for God. This fraternal life strengthens our witness to the world.
Our ministry is “for preaching and the salvation of souls”. We remain faithful to these ends through education, evangelization, and aid to the suffering.
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.

Mother Kolumba first began her apostolic works in the villages, ministering to the poor and suffering. Her work continues to this day through the hands of her Sisters throughout the world. The congregation’s apostolic work expands to teaching, evangelization, and aid to the suffering.
