Community life is about sharing, giving of self, praying and working together, and supporting one another.
Living in community enables us to support and enrich our personal and communal growth, and to witness gospel values.
Community is like life itself, with never-ending opportunities for growth, joy and the development of deep, sisterly love.
In community, the rich tapestry of religious life is woven strand by strand.
I’ve enjoyed living with other sisters because you learn so much from each other. You’re constantly changing and growing and assessing where you can give and take.
~ Sister Sharon Fitzpatrick
The hardest transition for me was in the method of making decisions. I had been on my own and raised two kids alone, so I was the decision-maker. In community, things don’t work that way.
~ Sister Judi Roberts
An important part of community is spending time together and sharing. We make it a point to have vespers and a meal together six times a week. We always celebrate a feast day, jubilee, birthday or some special event.
~ Sister Jeanette Heindl
