MONASTERY OF OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY, NUNS OF THE ORDER OF PREACHERS, BROOKSIDE HILLS SUBDIVISION, CAINTA, 1900 RIZAL, PHILIPPINES
July 01, 2015
TO OUR DEAR FRIENDS,
Peace in the Lord.
We are a community of Dominican Contemplative Nuns here in the Philippines whose foundation dates back to 1977.
Our Monastery was begun to be built in 1978 and slowly finished through the help of benefactors from abroad, as well as from local donors. For a little more than 30 years, the buildings have become degraded. As lot of repairs in the roof, ceilings, electrical wiring, and water pipes that have not yet been replaced in spite of their rusty condition, are now obliging us to seek help to finance the much needed work to be done.
We pray and hope for your assistance while we give you the assurance that the Lord will surely reward your generosity. Your intentions shall be included in our daily prayers.
God bless you and your families.
Gratefully in the Lord,
Sister Mary Remedios C. Pangan, O. P.
We are nuns of the Order of Preachers. Our life after leaving the world seeks to live with God alone, becoming a sign of that world which is to come.
The Dominican monastic contemplative life is the Church' gift-love to the world.
In 1972, the Dominican Province of the Philippines, an offshoot of the Holy Rosary Province, was canonically erected.
A core group was chosen to initiate the new monastic foundation. They were Mother Marie Rosaria Hiett, OP of Dayton, Ohio as Vicaress; Sr. Mary Lucina Yrigan, OP of Calbayog, Samar; Sr. Maria-Agnes Karasig, OP of Malolos, Bulacan; Sr. Maria Guadalupe Ramos, OP of Plaridel, Bulacan and Sr. Maria Aurea Perez, OP of San Antonio, Nueva Ecija. The five nuns were being drawn forward new heights.
The monastery in Cainta is a low building tucked in a sunny hillside commanding the broad sweep of the valley below.
This house of prayer is a visual expression of God's indwelling in the lives of these nuns who are called to the cloistered contemplative life founded on the vision and Christ-experience of St. Dominic.
