Saint Dominic’s Monastery — Dominican Nuns

Cloistered Contemplative Nuns of the Order of Preachers

“The monastery is the place guarded by God;
it is the dwelling place of His unique presence,
where the thrice-Holy God fills the entire space
and is recognized and honored as the only Lord.”
—Verbi Sponsa

A monastery of Dominican Nuns makes present the mission of the Order of Preachers: preaching and the salvation of souls. Through their hidden life of worship, silence, prayer, study and penance, the nuns witness to the reality of the Word of God while their brothers, the Dominican Friars, proclaim the Word in the pulpit, in the classroom and in the many parts of the world where they are sent to evangelize.

The desire of the nuns of St. Dominic’s Monastery is to continue to live a simple monastic life, faithful to the traditions of the Dominican Order, and to respond wholeheartedly to the direction set by the magisterium of the Church: a classical Dominican contemplative life, lived in the midst of the 21st century.
