Our Charism

In the footsteps of the Apostle Saint John, also known as the Beloved Disciple, “the Sisters seek to witness in today’s world, to the Love of Jesus for the Father and for all men.” (Constitutions #1).

 

 

 

 

 

Prayer

 

 

 

Fraternal charity

 

Our prayer life bears fruit in our community life. We strive to live out Christ's commandment of love “…as I have loved you, you should also love one another” (Jn 13:34) in small apostolic priories of 5-10 sisters.

apostolate

 

“Sent into the world” we serve the missionary and universal needs of the Church in close communion with the Bishops of the dioceses in which we serve. Our missions of evangelization mainly include catechesis, services in parishes, visiting the sick and elderly, prison minsitry, youth ministry, and hospitality.

Our life in small apostolic priories has four main dimensions: prayer, fraternal charity, studies, and apostolate.

“Desiring to follow Jesus in His complete gift of self, the sisters feel the need to put the hidden life of Christ at the very heart of their apostolic life: a life of adoration and contemplation…” (Rule of Life #9)

Our common life of prayer includes daily Eucharistic adoration, Mass, the Liturgy of the Hours, the rosary, and Lectio Divina. We chant our liturgies mainly in the vernacular using Gregorian tones, and we also sing traditional hymns such as the Salve Regina

The end goal of our life of studies is a greater understanding and love for the Word of God. For this, we study philosophy and theology according to the tradition of the Church with a focus on Aristotle and St. Thomas Aquinas. We also consider it necessary to know and understand the current questions we all face in the world today.
