Mission
We are a cloistered, contemplative, diocesanDominican institute of consecrated life in the Church. Called by God, we strive to live the gift of religious life following Dominican monastic tradition of silence and solitude, study and prayer in a communal setting, bearing witness to the presence of Christ's love in the midst of His people. We consecrate ourselves to God by vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, and we pray for the Church, the Holy Father, the clergy and all of God's people.

She should be in good mental and physical health, having completed two years of school or work experience beyond high school (college education preferred, but not essential). The candidate should submit recommendations from her pastor or spiritual director and at least two other persons who know her well.

Novitiate: a full year of preparation for first profession of the evangelical counsels, including study of Scripture, constitutions, liturgy, and documents of the Church.
