Welcome to the Dominican Sisters of CONGRÉGATION ROMAINE DE SAINT DOMINIQUE
Katarinahjemmet was founded in 1928 by the Dominican Sisters of Notre Dame de Grâce (Chatillon) with the intention of creating a good and natural meeting place with the Catholic Church in Norway. From 8 August 2022 this congregation went into a merger with the Congregation Romane de Sinte Dominique.
The sisters are living their lives by the dominican motto “contemplata aliis tradere”; to give to others the fruit of contemplation. They live a life in community, liturgy, studies and preaching.
As of today, our community consists of 11 sisters, of which 10 resides in Oslo and one in France. We have developed from being French, French-Norwegian, Norwegian-French to the international community of today — with sisters from Norway, Polen, Vietnam and India.
Prayer and masses are open to all who would like to attend.
