Help build a new convent for the Dominican Sisters of Mary Immaculate
The Advancement Foundation has started a capital campaign to raise $3.5 million for a new 11,000 square foot convent for the Dominican Sisters of Mary Immaculate on the grounds of Nolan Catholic High School in east Fort Worth.
The new home for the sisters was completed and dedicated in the fall of 2023. The campaign will retire the debt on the facility and provide funds for its operation and maintenance, as well as ensure the long-term presence of the sisters in the Diocese of Fort Worth.
The new convent, built in a monastic style, opens to a beautiful courtyard. It includes a chapel and living quarters for the sisters who serve in Catholic schools and faith formation programs throughout 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 teach at St. George, St. Joseph, St. John the Apostle, St. Rita, Holy Family, St. Peter the Apostle, and Nolan Catholic, and serve as director 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. 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.Sister Ann Nguyen, OP
