One Blessing

We have been blessed with many artistic sisters, as this bookmark from 1927 demonstrates.  It was a feast day gift for the Prioress, who at that time was our foundress, Mother Mary Hyacinth.

Study of Sacred Truth

As Dominicans, we have a love for sacred truth and seek to develop our mind as well as our heart, to dedicate our whole self to God.  This requires work, and is part of our asceticism.

Prayers for Priests

St. Catherine of Siena, one of our great Dominican Saints, had a great love for the Holy Father, whom she called the "Sweet Christ on earth."  We, too, offer special prayers for Our Holy Father, Our Bishops, and all priests--that they may be good and holy Shepherds to the flock.
