I would be happy to answer your questions and share with you what is means to be a Dominican Sister of Hawthorne. If you find that you would like to experience first hand our life of prayer, work and community, you could make arrangements to visit with us at our Motherhouse and Novitiate. During your visit, you would have the opportunity to ask questions and get to know some of our Sisters.

If you and the Community feel that this is where God may be calling you to, the formal application process would begin. Our Motherhouse and Novitiate is located in Hawthorne (Westchester County), New York. It's 30 miles north of New York City and easy to reach by car or public transportation. It is also convenient to all of the Metropolitan New York airports.

In Christ,


Sr. Alma Marie, O.P.
