Called to Follow, Drawn to Holiness, Inspired by Love
Holy Spirit guide me
Our vocation draws women who aspire to a hidden life of prayer and work, women whose sense of humor is as contagious as is their sense of duty for the salvation of souls. Giving witness to Christ's love through living the Gospels, each sister dedicates her own unique gifts and talents as a means of allowing the Holy Spirit who secretly guides her heart to holiness.
In joyful obedience to our Rule and Constitutions we are embraced, inspired and drawn ever closer to God by His sanctifying graces which flow through our lives consecrated by the Evangelical Counsels of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience and our fourth vow of Memoria Pasionis.
