Study

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.

For the Salvation of Souls

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.
