Welcome to the Sisters of St. Dominic of Amityville

We Dominican women religious, called to be signs of joy and hope, commit ourselves to incarnating the Gospel, deepening our life of prayer, searching for truth, discerning the needs of the Church, and ministering to the people of God.


We offer the world our commitment to preaching the gospel, passing on the charism, and proclaiming the dignity and interconnectedness of life.


In 1853, four Sisters from Holy Cross monastery in Regensburg, Germany set sail for the United States to teach immigrant German children.

Update on Sisters in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria

We thank God that our Sisters in Puerto Rico are all safe. However, we know that is not true for all on the island, so please continue to pray. As elsewhere in the Caribbean, where the Sisters live, there has been damage to their chapel and some buildings. The Sisters, like so many others in Puerto Rico, are cleaning up and waiting for the full restoration of power and communications. Many of you have been asking how to help and we have asked our Congregation’s Province in Puerto Rico what support would be most beneficial. At this time, they would be grateful for monetary donations, that they will use in helping to clean up and rebuild what has been damaged and also in their ministries, which serve so many people on the island. One of our Sisters from Puerto Rico is here in New York. She will be returning to Bayamon next Monday. We have set up a collection for her to bring back with her to Puerto Rico. We realize this is a hurried request with short notice, but if you are planning to donate, please send any monetary contributions to Sister Carolann Masone, OP at the Queen of the Rosary Motherhouse by this Friday, September 29, 2017. Checks should be made out to the Sisters of St. Dominic. The address is 555 Albany Avenue, Amityville, NY 11701.

We will continue to explore ways to reach out to our Sisters, our Associates and the people of Puerto Rico. Thank you so much in advance for your generosity.
