The Sisters of Saint Dominic of Blauvelt, New York are a community of vowed women religious committed to bringing hope and mercy to people in need through various programs and advocacy. 

The Dominican motto "to praise, to bless, to preach"  the Word in response to the signs of the times, motivates our apostolic service. We are committed to living simply and responsibly in the pursuit of peace.

How We Live Our Mission

As Dominican Sisters and Associates, we endeavor to proclaim the good news of the compassionate love of God for each person, with a special concern and presence for those who are poor and on the margins of society. We are committed to responding to the needs of the world, especially to the needs of the most vulnerable in the entire community of life.


Our lives are centered on the four pillars of Dominican life: Prayer, Study, Community Life, and Ministry.

We strive to see the world through God's eyes and allow God to respond to the world through us in mission. We recognize the need to be promoters of justice and peace. We are committed to living in a sustainable way.

Our Collaborative Endeavors

As Sisters of Saint Dominic, we are engaged in activities and projects that bring together the resources, expertise, and values of various Congregations.
