Help build a new convent for the Dominican Sisters of Mary Immaculate
The Advancement Foundation has started a capital campaign to raise $2.5 million to build a new 11,000 square foot convent convent for the Dominican Sisters of Mary Immaculate on the grounds of Nolan Catholic High School in east Fort Worth.
Ground has been broken and construction has begun on the new home for the sisters, scheduled to open for the 2022-23 school year.
The new convent, being built in a monastic style, is horseshoe shaped and opens to a courtyard. It will improve the lives of the 10 sisters who help educate the Catholic youth of the diocese and have more space so that more sisters can come to work in the diocese.
The order has 39 sisters teaching at 18 different universities, high schools, and elementary schools in several dioceses.
In the Fort Worth diocese, the sisters are at St. George Catholic School, St. Joseph, St. John the Apostle, St. Rita, Holy Family, St. Peter the Apostle, Nolan, and in parish ministries as directors of religious education at St. Jude Church in Mansfield.
We pray for fidelity in carrying out our traditional charism, and we know we can’t do it if we don’t have the practical means,” Sister Ann Nguyen, OP, one of the 10 Dominican sisters in the Fort Worth diocese said. “In this manner, through the capital campaign to build a new convent, we can extend our apostolate with practical means to better serve the people of God, particularly in the Fort Worth Diocese.Dominican Sisters of Mary Immaculate
