What's Happening at the Dome

We Are Teachers, Nurses, Musicians, Social Workers…

You will find us ministering all around our region, working with others and living out our Benedictine values. We have many different areas of focus, but one common goal:  to love and serve in Jesus’ name. Get to know some of our sisters:
