Dominican Nuns

                                           at the Heart of the Order of Preachers  

A community of Cloistered Dominican Nuns with Solemn Vows, Papal Enclosure and Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, 

following the Rule of Saint Augustine and the Constitutions of the Nuns of the Order of Preachers, 

we live a hidden sacrificial life of faith, adoration and charity at the heart of the Dominican Order 

and are associated with the "holy preaching"  of the Order by our lives of prayer and penance. ​

Founded in 1947 from the Dominican Monastery of Our Lady of the Rosary, Summit New Jersey, 

the community now numbers 23, including two nuns in simple vows and one postulant.​
