As cloistered Dominican nuns, we live the traditional monastic observances. To learn about the various aspects of Dominican monastic life, click on the words below to see photos and read texts from the Book of the Constitutions of the Nuns of the Order of Preachers (LCM).

Common Life

The first reason for which we are gathered together in community is to live in harmony, having one mind and heart in God. The unanimity of our life, rooted in the love of God, should furnish a living example of that reconciliation of all things in Christ which our brethren proclaim in their preaching of the word. (LCM 2:I)

We enjoy doing things together as a community. Like our founder St. Dominic, of whom it was said, "No one was more community minded, no one more joyous," we try to be cheerful and loving toward all our sisters as we work, pray, and recreate!
