In 1945, a special seed was sown in the soil of the Piney Woods of East Texas: Dominican cloistered contemplative life. The planters were Dominican nuns from the Monastery of the Blessed Sacrament in Detroit, MI (now Farmington Hills, MI).

We have weathered the heat and storms, the cool and fair skies of daily life to grow into a strong community. Today we number 23 sisters from throughout the United States as well as from Cuba, Mexico, Tanzania and Vietnam.
