Our foremost mission is to “press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us” (Phil 3:12-14). Our dedication to all the Saints inspires us to remember that it is in the company of all the Saints that we are following Jesus, even to Calvary.

As a formerly Anglo-Catholic Community, we treasure the opportunity to share with other Catholics the riches of our Anglican Patrimony by bringing the best of that tradition into full communion with the Holy See, in complete loyalty to the Holy Father and in faithful adherence to the Magisterium of the Church.

We long for the unity of the Body of Christ as Our Lord Jesus Christ prayed: “May they all be one” (John 17:21). We endeavor to contribute whatever we can, in prayer and in action, to further this unity. We eagerly look forward to the day when there truly will be “one flock and one Shepherd” (John 10:16).
Be a Catholic woman and faithful to the Holy Father and the Catholic Church, age 21 or older, at least a high school diploma, free from canonical impediments including debts, a desire to give oneself totally to God, and with good physical and mental health.
Initial Formation includes Inquirers, Aspirants, Postulants (6 months to 1 year), and Novices (2 years). Temporary Profession is made for three years, and may be renewed annually for up to six additional years before Perpetual Profession. The Sisters are to be conscientiously attentive to their on-going spiritual, doctrinal and practical formation throughout their lives.
