Who Are the Dominican Sisters?

Dominican Sisters in the United States are a diverse, vibrant and colorful mosaic of the Church. Their mission to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ is carried out in countless ways. The Gospel is brought to life through their teaching, care for the poor, advocacy for justice, their art, music, care of creation, spiritual enrichment ministries, housing advocacy, and much more. Collaboration and building relationships are the hallmarks of their work.

Prayer, Study, Community and Ministry, the four pillars of Domincan tradition, find their home among Dominican sisters in over 30 congregations in the US. Sisters reflecting a broad spectrum of experience and searching out God's hopes for the world. They can be found in the halls of Congress, in rural farmlands, in universities, in prisons and in neighborhood centers.
