Our Charism


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

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. " (Constituions #1)


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

Salve Regina - Apostolic Sisters of StJohn

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.


The goal of our formation is to become like Christ. We especially try to grow in love and understanding of the Word of God, but we also study philosophy and theology according to the tradition of the Church. We consider it necessary to know and understand the current questions we all face in the world today.


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 minstry, youth ministry, and hospitality.
