Dominican Sisters of Hawthorne

Formation is a process of gradual preparation for the total offering of self to Christ in His Church. For our Congregation, this formation is imbued with the spirit of St. Dominic, the ideals of Mother Mary Alphonsa, and the integration of a profound spiritual life with apostolic service. For those who have answered Christ's invitation to a fuller living of their baptismal consecration, the formation period is a crucial time of evaluation and response.


Formation of the human person is vital for the life of the consecrated religious. The process of formation begins as the candidate discerns her vocation, continues through the whole of life and only concludes at the Sister’s death.
