About St. Catharine Farm About Our Meat Pricing and Order Information Donate

St. Catharine Farm is an ecological ministry of the Dominican Sisters of Peace. In keeping with our 2022 Chapter Commitments and our Congregational Commitment to reducing the impact of global climate change, we support actions, programs and legislation on all levels to protect Earth’s climate.

Placing St. Catharine Farm into an ecological trust in 2022 demonstrates our dedication to the preservation of Earth and her beauty.

The Dominican Sisters of Peace minister in 27 dioceses and Nigeria, serving the people of God with education, spiritual education and counsel, social services, health care, and care of Creaton.

The Congregation has motherhouses in Kansas, Kentucky, and Ohio. Our Generalate, or Congregational headquarters, is located on Airport Drive in the Shephard neighborhood of Columbus, OH, five minutes from the John Glenn International Airport. Our closest neighbor is Ohio Dominican University, which we founded in 1911.

The Dominican Sisters of Peace seek to heal the wounded Body of Christ in every way we can. Inspired by the Preface of the Mass for the Feast of Christ the King, it is truly our desire to joyfully advance God’s “Reign of truth and life, of holiness and grace, of justice, love and peace.”
