Dominican Sisters of Mary,

The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist draw from the dynamism of the 'new', the vitality of the New Evangelization, and the rich heritage of the 'old', the cherished tradition of the Order of Preachers. While we espouse the impetus of the late Pope John Paul II's exhortation, Vita Consecrata: "... the church needs the spiritual and apostolic contribution of a renewed and revitalized consecrated life..." we hand down the Dominican charism.

We are consecrated women first, and so our foremost model is Mary, the Mother of God. Inspired by the spirit and energy of St. Dominic, our prayer comes first so that our apostolic work overflows from a contemplation nourished before the Eucharist.
