who we areWe are a Catholic contemplative Dominican monastery based in Kenya and bonded together through the Constitutions of the Nuns of the Order of Preachers.

We seek God by observing the norms of the purely contemplative life, by maintaining our withdrawal from the world by our enclosure and silence, by working diligently, studying the truth eagerly, searching the Scriptures with ardent heart, praying intently, willingly practicing penance, pursuing communion through our manner of government, in purity of conscience and the joy of sisterly concord, "in freedom of spirit." Here in Nairobi,(Eastern Africa), our Dominican Monastery was founded in 1965.
