Bringing the Light of Christ into the World

The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist are passionate about sharing the truth, beauty, and goodness of God—leading others into an encounter with Christ. Openlight Media is an accessible and trustworthy portal providing relevant informational resources helping educators, young families, and individuals.


Our community was founded in 1997 under the care of John Cardinal O’Connor. Through the profession of the evangelical counsels, we seek to embody the graces of the new evangelization, which Saint John Paul II announced as “the prelude to a new springtime in the Church.” The spiritual identity of fraternal life in community is shaped by our Dominican spirituality with emphasis on Eucharistic adoration and Marian devotion.

We are contemplative first and foremost. The overflow of this contemplative union with Christ finds encouragement from Saint Dominic’s missionary zeal, which raises up preachers of truth for the purpose of preaching the Gospel.
