None of us is over 160 years old – but our congregation of Catholic vowed women is! Women have been stepping forward to be Dominican Sisters of San Rafael for a long time. While sometimes we’re called nuns, we are sisters. Some of us prefer to wear habits and some don’t. Some of us are working in schools, hospitals and parishes. Others are committed to social justice and systemic change. All of us have committed our lives to Jesus and the vision of Saint Dominic: to preach the Gospel with our lives as well as our words. We live and pray in community with the hope that our mission will be life-giving to the Church and to all God’s people - bringing the Gospel to bear with depth and compassion on the critical issues of our times.
