The Convent of the Hermanas Dominicas de Fatima

This is a very nice convent where the Fatima sisters live. It has a small church in the middle of the yard, a community center, a cemetery, a building that houses their office and receiving area.

The Prayer in Spanish for Sister Dominga

Oh, Senor y Dios nuestro, que llamaste a Madre Dominga, a quien adornaste de un ardiente amor aJesucristo y a la Santisima Virgen a traves de la Eucaristia y del rezo y cotemplacion de lost misterios del Rosario, a fundamentar la vida familiar en Cristo y a servir al projimo. Mediante el estudio de su vida e imitacion de su ejemplo, te pedimos nos concedas la gracia que suplicamos para honra y gloria de Tu Nombre. Amen.
(Indica la gracia que desea alcanzar)
(Rezar 3 Avemarias o algun Misterio del Rosario)

My daughter and I, including 16 other high school students visited Yauco to interact with the sisters and to learn more about the community where we were going to volunteer.

We learned about the history of the Dominican sisters and how the estate was bought by Sister Dominga. We have also learned that some of the residents in Yauco believe that Sister Dominga should be canonized as a saint because of the many miracles that happened in Yauco.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:It is a place to go back and help the sisters on their community outreach.
  • Cons:Very little time to visit
  • In a nutshell:I hope and pray that I will be blessed with more money so I can help the sisters in their community projects.
