Possibility of a Retreat

We all know that in our noisy and fast-paced world, it is difficult to stop and pray and meet God in silence. When we are in a period of discernment, that is to say when seeking God's will for our lives, we need longer moments of silence, prayer, intimacy with Him to listen to the Holy Spirit and be formed by Him.

That is why we want to offer young women who are in the process of discerning what their calling may be, the opportunity to experience moments of silence and prayer by opening the doors of our convent. They may either come and adore in our chapel, participate in our liturgies, spend a day of retreat and, if they so desire, meet a sister to answer questions or simply share. Those who would like to spend a few days with us can also do so by contacting Sister Isabelle Normand with this form.

The vocation of a Dominican Missionary Adorer?

The Dominican Missionary Adorers are dedicated to the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus. We lead a community and apostolic life, both contemplative and active, centered on adoration. We tend to be adorers in mission and missionaries in adoration. Our mission is to make known the immense love of Christ who gives himself to us in the Eucharist.




As for the whole Order of St. Dominic, our life is centered in four areas: community life, life of prayer, study and apostolate.
