Vowed LifeVocations

Emboldened by faith, serving with joy.

What are religious vocations? In professing our vows as Sisters we promise to give of ourselves — through faith in God and in service to the Church and to the world.

In living our mission: to praise, to bless, to preach… our very lives are a testimony to what we have seen and heard in Christ.

We are formed, and transformed — over and over — through prayer, study, community, and service.

If you are wondering about consecrated life; if you have a desire to live according to the Gospel teaching of Jesus Christ and want to make space in your heart to serve, we encourage you to spend some time in discernment and prayer. Our Vocation Director can provide guidance no matter where you are on your path of inquiry and spiritual devotion.


More About Vocations

Religious life is a vocation to live Gospel values.

We don’t pray for women to join our Congregation. We pray with and for women who are discerning their life vocation, and then allow the Holy Spirit to guide them to God’s dream for them…
