Life and Mission


Women of the Word, Dominican nuns are called to holiness of life through communal living, profession of the evangelical counsels, private and liturgical prayer, lectio divina, study, regular monastic observance, and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

Zeal for the Gospel is a fire of God burning within. Faith tells us that this unseen fire travels throughout the world giving God’s strength and power to the words and deeds of all their Dominican brothers and sisters in the active ministry.

The nuns unite themselves closely with the great compassionate heart of St Dominic. Their intercessory prayer becomes one with his cry: “Lord Jesus, what is to become of poor sinners!”
