St Dominic

Dominican Sisters of Malta

In accord with the words of St. Catherine of Siena “we have been sent to sow the word of God” the Dominican Sisters of Malta fully embrace the charism and spirituality of the Order of Preachers. Knowing well that the only word we can preach is the word that has found a home within us because we have welcomed it, pondered it, and contemplated it in the silence of our hearts, we seek to first enflesh the word in our lives by means of an intense and prayerful study of the Word of God.mission 2

Following the footsteps of our founder St. Dominic and the many saints of the Order, we strive to be authentic proclaimers of the word, to a world divided and hurting; to preach the Gospel of hope and mercy as Jesus did and thus sharing with others  the fruits of our contemplation.

In accord with the Dominican tradition in spirituality, the members of our communities give themselves to the common life, times and places of silence, the recitation of the Divine Office in common and daily Mass.
