Is God Calling You to
Make a Difference in the World?

Come join a group of women who strive in their daily lives to be "vibrant and compassionate signs of hope in our broken world."

St. Marguerite d'Youville left her legacy - a spirituality of compassion and unwavering faith in a Provident God as a way for others to follow and make known in their lives. Her belief in the equality and dignity of all made her a champion of human rights.

As a Congregation today,
we are committed to:

. Solidarity with the poor
. Risk taking for the promotion of justice
. Contemplative stance - God is always with us
. Openness, mutual support and co-responsibility in the church and the congregation
. Sacredness of life

Through consecration of ourselves to God, we believe that we enter into a sacred and binding covenant. We dedicate ourselves, energies, time and talents to serve Jesus and those persons who are most in need.
