Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist: Ann Arbor, Michigan

The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist is a Roman Catholic community of women religious based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, founded in the Dominican tradition to spread the witness of religious life in accord with Pope John Paul II's vision for a new evangelization.

Through profession of the vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience, along with a contemplative emphasis on Eucharistic adoration and Marian devotion, the community exists for the salvation of souls and the building of the Church throughout the world. As Dominicans, their primary apostolate is the education and formation of young people. They remain open to engaging the modern culture with new forms of evangelization in order to preach the Gospel and teach the Truth.
