Mini Live-In Experience

Community life is very important to Dominicans – in fact, along with prayer, study and service, community is one of the four pillars of the Dominican charism, or “grace given by God.”

Women who have begun the discernment process with the Dominican Sisters of Peace often take some time to actually live with the Sisters. Spending some time with our community allows you to experience the daily rhythm of our lives in prayer and ministry, and to taste the blessings of community life.

Discerners who have taken this opportunity say it has been an invaluable part of their discernment journey because it gave them a view of our life from the inside.

We welcome you to stay with us at one of our Houses of Welcome:
