AUTHENTIC

We, the Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose, the Congregation of the Queen of the Holy Rosary, are called to live and proclaim Jesus Christ through evangelizing, preaching, educating, and promoting justice and peace.

In the spirit of St. Dominic and of our foundress, Mother Maria Pia Backes, we witness to this call through our vowed life.

Our prayer, study, ministry, and life in community empower us to participate in the mission of Jesus, especially among the young, the poor, and the vulnerable.

Our Mission Statement

“Mary Magdalen went and announced to the disciples,  
‘I have seen the Lord!’”  John 20:18

Appearing to Mary Magdalen, Jesus sent her to the community to tell the good news of his resurrection. We, too, are sent to go forth and tell others the good news of God’s love.

The Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose, the Congregation of the Queen of the Holy Rosary, currently ministers in Arizona, California, and Mexico.

It is a joy to serve our Congregation and give leadership to the Direction Statement from our General Chapter.  We desire to “live out of a deep center of love” as we minister to “the young, the poor and the vulnerable” with joy, building “bridges of love” and unity in our world today.
