Mission
The whole life of the Dominican Cloistered nuns is harmoniously ordered to the continual remembrance of God. Called by the Lord, we strive to have the same mind as Christ Jesus through the daily celebration of the Eucharist, and the Divine Office. By daily recitation of the Rosary in community, by private prayer, reading and meditation on the Sacred Scripture, in silence and stillness, in Eucharistic adoration, we earnestly seek the face of the Lord and never cease making intercession with Him that all men and women might be saved. As Dominican nuns, we are consecrated to God by solemn vows and have papal enclosure.

Formation
Postulancy of 12 months, followed by a novitiate of 2 years, then temporary vows of 3 years, and then permanent vows.
