Dominican Nuns, Summit, New Jersey © Toni Greaves

The Dominican Nuns of Summit, New Jersey are a Roman Catholic cloistered monastic community. Their primary mission is to pray for the salvation of souls, and to support the preaching mission of the Dominican friars. The 21 Nuns lead a hidden life of Eucharistic prayer, adoration, thanksgiving, and intercession. At the time of taking this photo, 21-year-old Sister Lauren Franko had been a Novice Nun for two months. Now 22, she recently had her “clothing ceremony” –her official engagement to God– where she received the Dominican habit and took a new, holy, name of her choosing… Sister Maria Teresa of the Sacred Heart.
