Become a Sister

We are ordinary women who live the Gospel in a manner that witnesses to God’s inclusive love. We do this by living a life in community committed to prayer and serving others “in any way of which woman is capable.”

If you are searching for a deeper meaning in life, desire to make a difference in the world and long for community, you may be experiencing a call to this way of life.

The Process

Inquiry - If you believe God is inviting you to explore the possibility of becoming a Sister, get in touch with the vocation director below.

Candidacy | 6 months - 2 years - A time for you and us to look at your desire and call to religious life.

Novitiate| 2 years - A time for you to deepen your relationship with God and the community through prayer, study and self-reflection. You continue to discern your desire for community life and vowed commitment and participate in apostolic activities.

First Profession | Usually 1 - 3 Years - Extendable to 6: You profess the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience.

Final Profession | Lifetime - Having lived these vows, you make a perpetual commitment to live them for the rest of your life.
