• Prayer


    "Let them earnestly seek the face of the Lord and never cease making intercession with the God of our salvation that all men and women might be saved. They should give thanks to God the Father who has called them out of darkness into His wonderful light. Let Christ, who was fastened to the cross for all, be fast-knit to their hearts."

    - Constitutions of the Dominican Sisters of St Joseph, 57.II

  • Sacred Study

    Sacred Study

    "Before all else, our study should aim principally and ardently at this that we might be able to be useful to the souls of our neighbours."

    - Primitive Constitutions of the Order of Preachers, prologue.

  • Community


    "Like the Church of the Apostles, our communion is founded, built up and made firm in the one Spirit. It is in the Spirit that we receive the Word from God the Father with one faith, contemplate Him with one heart, and praise Him with one voice. In Him we are made one body, share in the one bread, and finally hold all things in common."

    - Constitutions of the Dominican Sisters of St Joseph, 3,I

  • Mission


    "The sisters of our Congregation are called to participate in the Order's task of evangelisation for they listen to the word, celebrate it and keep it in their hearts (Cf Lk 2:18), and in this way proclaim the Gospel of God by the example of their lives and the various ministries to which they are assigned."

    - Constitutions of the Dominican Sisters of St Joseph
