A New Community for a New Millennium
We are a recent addition to the spiritual family of St. Dominic. We honor the centuries-old Dominican tradition while also fully embracing St. John Paul II’s call to a New Evangelization.
The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist began in 1997 with our four foundresses: Mother Assumpta, Sr. Mary Samuel, Sr. Joseph Andrew, and Sr. John Dominic. We were canonically established by John Cardinal O’Connor of New York and built our Motherhouse in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Our foundresses believed that the spirituality of St. Dominic had much to contribute to the New Evangelization. They also knew that for our efforts to be successful, we needed to center our entire lives around the Eucharist.
Soon after we were established, we started receiving inquiries from young women who felt called to religious life. In a time when many religious orders were in decline, God blessed us from the beginning with amazing growth.
In 2019, we opened the first phase of our new Our Lady of Guadalupe Priory in Georgetown, Texas, which will ultimately hold up to 115 new Sisters. We need to keep up with all the vocations God is sending our way!
The Sisters of Mary Today
God has blessed us with over 140 sisters. We are a young order — not only because we’re still relatively new, but because the average age of our sisters is 37.
Our mission is still the same: to share God’s message of faith and the joy of religious life with the modern world through education, vocation promotion and the media. But we’re also adaptable, embracing new forms of communication to continually reach the hearts of those searching for Christ.
Be Part of Our Future!
Whether you’re an aspirant to religious life, parent, donor or simply curious about us, we’d love to answer your questions and — God willing — have you share in our mission.
Sr. Marie Jeanette, O.P.
