Mother of God Monastery

We are an independent monastery of cloistered contemplative nuns, following the rule of Saint Augustine and the Book of Constitutions of the Nuns of the Order of Preachers.  Our contribution to the Dominican Order and the Church at large is spiritual, offering our prayers and sacrifices for the salvation of souls.
