The commitment to study cannot be limited to the gaining of academic degrees and professional qualifications. Rather, study is an expression of the unquenchable desire for an ever deeper knowledge of God, the source of light and all human truth. Commitment to study is an incentive to dialogue and cooperation, a training in the capacity for judgment, a stimulus to contemplation and prayer in the constant quest for the presence and activity of God in the complex reality of today's world. The intellectual life is nourished through reading, research and study. This strong charism of the Dominican Order is never neglected. Our well-stocked library is provided for the use of the Sisters. Our daily schedule incorporates ample time for study and private research.
