Dominican life is rooted in the common celebration of the Liturgy—the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the Divine Office. Eucharistic adoration, the pondering of Sacred Scripture, mental prayer and a tender devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary form part of the daily lives of the Sisters.
The Rule of Saint Augustine reminds us that an essential element of religious life is the union of hearts and minds in God. We glorify God by our oneness with Him and each other in deep mutual respect and loving concern. Our love of God and our witness of mutual love are a service we give to the world.
Blessed Dominic recommended some form of study to the first nuns as an authentic observance of the Order. We hold in high regard both religious and professional study on a continuing basis as a means of growth in the love of God and service of neighbor.
