Free for God Alone!


The Nuns of the Order of Preachers...

... are to seek, ponder and call upon the Lord Jesus Christ in solitude so that the WORD proceeding from the mouth of God may not return to Him empty, but may accomplish those things for which It was sent. (Isaiah 55:10) Living in the heart of the Preaching Family, the nuns live in the WORD of God which the friars, sisters and laity preach. In the cloister the nuns devote themselves totally to God and perpetuate that singular gift which the blessed Dominic had of bearing sinners, the down-trodden and the afflicted in the inmost sanctuary of his compassion. They incarnate in their lives the cry of Saint Dominic:

“O Lord, what will become of sinners!”

A Dominican Nun is consecrated to God and lives the mission of the Order of Preachers to preach the Gospel for the salvation of souls through a life of prayer, hearing the Word of God and contemplating the mysteries of Salvation through the privileged prayer of the Rosary in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament exposed in the monstrance.

Dominican Monastic Life


“The nuns seek God by observing the norms of the purely contemplative life, by maintaining their withdrawal from the world by enclosure and silence, by working diligently, studying the truth eagerly, searching the Scriptures with ardent heart, praying intently, willingly practicing penance, pursuing communion through their manner of government, in purity of conscience and the joy of sisterly concord, “in freedom of spirit.”

In the heart of the Holy Preaching

“In silence and stillness, let them earnestly seek the face of the Lord and never cease making intercession with the God of our salvation that all men and women might be saved. They should give thanks to God the Father who has called them out of darkness into his wonderful light. Let Christ, who was fastened to the cross for all, be fastknit to their hearts. In fulfilling all these things, they are truly nuns of the Order of Preachers.”
