Welcome to Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon
The Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon are women of prayer, living in simplicity
and sisterly love.
We serve our community through child development and education,
lifelong learning, elder care, sacred space for contemplation and retreat, and off-campus outreach and ministry.

Monthly Reflection on Saints
Each month, the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon share the life story of a saint in “A View from the Dome.” Each saint used his or her unique gifts to serve and to honor God. These stories carry “a message about who we are, whom we admire, and what we value.” During October 2014, we honor St. Gaspar del Bufalo.
Learn more about the Saints.
For those interested in vocations, we host retreats where you can meet the Sisters and discuss what it means to be a Sister.
