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.

Mission

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

History

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

Our own Sister Marenid Fabre travelled down to Puerto Rico to check on our Sisters there, family and the community after the damage caused by Hurricane Maria four months ago. There is still much devastation there and many needs. She found that even now only fifty percent of Puerto Rico has restored electrical power. Sister Myriam Irizarry (PICTURED DISTRIBUTING FOOD) is working with those still in need....If you would ike to help, they need shampoo, deodorant, soaps, hand sanitizers, baby and Clorox wipes, toothbrushes and toothpaste as well as non-perishable foods such as rice, sugar and canned goods. Send to Myriam Irizarry at HC - 01 Box 2406, Morovis, Puerto Rico 00687.
