The Congregation of the Dominican Sisters of Wanganui, in New Zealand, is under the Patronage of Our Lady of the Rosary and St Catherine of Siena

St Dominic's Convent, Wanganui, NZ

We are currently in the process of updating our website – please, bear with us while we make the necessary adjustments – with all the Sisters once again under one roof in Wanganui! Our most urgent need now is funds for the building of our new accommodation block, so all the Sisters have a private place to study and can sleep in separate cells. If you can help us in any way, email us and help us please spread the word!
