Saint Dominic’s Monastery — Dominican Nuns

Cloistered Contemplative Nuns of the Order of Preachers

“Go up to the hill country,
bring timber and build the house,
that I may take pleasure in it,
and receive my glory, says the Lord.”
—Haggai 1:8


St. Dominic’s Monastery is located atop Blue Mountain, overlooking the Shenandoah Valley. We and our visitors are continually awestruck by the beauty and majesty of the site. The property, once a prosperous apple orchard, provides the much-needed space for a monastery and ensures the silence and solitude essential for the contemplative life.

If you are between the ages of 20 and 35 and think you might have a vocation to Dominican monastic life, please contact us through our website, by phone or by mail for further information.
