Dominican Nuns

We are Order of Preachers, contemplatives in the cloistered life founded by Saint Dominic before he established the friars.

Community Lectio Divina

By our hidden life we proclaim prophetically that in Christ alone is true happiness to be found, here by grace and afterwards in glory.

Consecrated to God

We are consecrated to God living the mission of the Order of Preachers to preach the Gospel for the salvation of souls through our life of prayer, penance, hearing the Word of God and contemplating the mysteries of Salvation.

Monastery Projects

Candle Making


We are Dominican nuns, cloistered women Catholic religious.  We have dedicated our lives to prayer by living in a monastery. We were found by St. Dominic before he founded the Dominican friars. In 1216, when the Dominican Friars were officially established, the first community of nuns had already existed for two years. We were found with the express intent of praying for the success of the Dominican Preaching.

Our whole life as nuns of the order of preachers is harmoniously ordered to preserve the continual remembrance of God.
