St. John Priory. East Orange, NJ
"The apostolate of the Apostolic Sisters of Saint John is fulfilled in communion with the Bishop of the Diocese, a life of evangelization; it involves first of all the witness of a life of adoration, of contemplation and of fraternal charity overflowing into hospitality and spiritual help in all its forms." - Constitutions of the Congregation #6
In response to the late Archbishop John J. Meyers' invitation, we came to the Archdiocese of Newark, New Jersey in 2007.
We strive to bear witness to the presence of Christ, and bring hope and peace for those in our neighborhood and for everyone we encounter in our apostolic life.
In as much as there are different gifts of the Holy Spirit, so does the ministries in which the Sisters
serve the Church in this city.
