"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you." (Psalm 32:8)
As Dominican Sisters, we emphasize the pondering of divine truths. To witness to God's primacy, to our vow of poverty, and to express our identity as a community, we wear the Dominican habit. Because we are totally committed to the Lord, we identify fully with the mind, the teaching, and the discipline of the Church that He established.
In the Dominican tradition, we communicate the truth through the apostolate of teaching. Saint Dominic ordained study essential to the purpose of the Dominican Order. We, therefore, place emphasis on study for the love and pursuit of divine truth, as well as to make us fitting and qualified for the important work of our apostolate.
Our apostolate, teaching, flows from, alternates, with, and is sustained by our life of prayer.
