 We are a community of consecrated women who have dedicated our lives to serve God through prayer behind the walls of our cloistered monastery. By our life of contemplation, study and prayer, we aim at sanctifying ourselves, our city, country, continent and the entire world. Out of our dedication for sanctification and salvation of ourselves and the entire world, we center our life on personal and liturgical prayer such as adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Divine Office, celebration of holy mass, intercessory prayers, and the rosary.

Our community was found in 1965.  Since then, we have zealously continued to witness the charism of our holy father an  founder St. Dominic. We are part of a larger Dominican Family responding to divine call to preach the Gospel of Jesus in the footsteps of St. Dominic. We are located in Karen, the Catholic Archdiocese of Nairobi – Kenya.
