The first purpose for which you have come together is to live in unity in the house of the Lord and to be of one mind and one heart in God. Do not consider anything your own, but hold all that you have in common. And let material necessities be provided, not to all alike, but to each according to her need.

Acts, 4:3

Please support the Sisters »

When the Sisters transition from active ministry and require assisted living or skilled care, they come home to the Motherhouse in Amityville. Their living expenses and medical care are supported by the Congregation and the generosity of benefactors.


Please support the Ministries »

The Sisters of St. Dominic have always addressed the changing needs of God’s people. Education and social services; prison and hospital ministries; and literacy programs that serve the undocumented and marginalized, the Sisters go where the need is greatest.
