Committed to the needs of others, especially the economically poor, marginal, and oppressed. We are willing to take necessary risks to be a healing, compassionate presence in our violent world--especially for women, children and those who have no voice. A community of nearly 650 Catholic women religious, we choose a Gospel way of life lived in community. We uphold a long tradition of loving God and being in relationships through loving service. Today we minister in the U.S. and beyond in various ministries--wherever God's people need us most.
