The Dominican Sisters of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary of Fatima were founded by the Servant of God Mother Dominga Guzman-Florit in 1949 in Yauco, Puerto Rico. They are a Puerto Rican Religious Congregation of Pontifical Right that are affiliated with the Order of Preachers (Dominican Friars) called to serve all people, but especially the family. Their missionary presence is found in Puerto Rico, the United States, Haiti, Venezuela, and the Dominican Republic. They also offer social work in Connecticut, Washington and Texas.
Sister Aurea was born in Arroyo, Puerto Rico, “I am the 6th of 7 children of Ricardo Torres and Josefina Ramos. I am blessed with a very special family where my parents planted in our hearts the love of God, devotion to the Virgin Mary and love of our brothers and sisters. In November of 1969 I was baptized. My parents were a living example of love of God and the Church. Every day we prayed the rosary as a family and that tradition continues on to this day. Together as a family we participated in the Holy Mass in the Chapel of San José. In that community my spiritual life developed.”
