Study-Sister Mary Paynter lecturingSinsinawa Dominican Sisters value education for themselves as well as for all people with whom they minister. Sisters are encouraged and supported in continuing their academic, professional, and artistic studies, using every tool available to expand their knowledge and skills and deepen their personal wisdom. By participating in the unfolding of truth through study and contemplation, Sinsinawa Dominicans live their mission to proclaim the Good News of God’s love.

"Study is both an activity and a way of life. The call to study is an imperative of the Dominican vocation because Dominicans are entrusted with the ministry of preaching and teaching the Gospel. Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters have inherited from their founder," Father Samuel Mazzuchelli, a rich tradition of the study of theology and the Scriptures, the arts, and the social and natural sciences. The Sinsinawa Dominicans engage in a lifelong commitment to serious thought, to contemplation, and to informed action which alone can discover some solution to human suffering and help to bring about a new creation.
