Dominican Missionary Sistersof the Sacred Heart of Jesus


About us

We are Dominican Missionary Sisters,
women of various nationalities and cultures.
Aware of our dignity and giftedness,
we create life-giving, participative communities.

We are energized by contemplation and study of the Word of God.
We engage in a common search for the truth about God, ourselves and the world.

We preach by our life and service,
and are a prophetic presence, witnessing to
and proclaiming the Good News of God’s love,
of justice and reconciliation, compassion and hope.

We live Gospel values faithfully
and take risks,
as we challenge abuse of power, materialism and individualism
in ourselves and others.
We make efforts to honour and care for the earth,
to alleviate porverty,
and to promote all that supports life.

Through diverse apostolates, and in collaboration with others,
we commit ourselves to be of service to
and share the concerns of people, especially those at risk.
Together we create an environment
which empowers all
to find meaning, healing and wholeness of life.
