Are you called to religious life?

Visiting a Community of Sisters can be a meaningful way to discern your vocation.

Is this moment for you?

Come and Pray with the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon

Everyone has a vocation, and women today have many choices. Some pursue careers, many marry and some choose a single life. The Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon devote their lives to prayer, Community and service in ministry.

In a world where so much competes for your minds and attention, it is easy to feel disconnected. In our changing world of being ‘socially distance’ the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon continue to pray for our world in the pandemic. We live together as women of payer in simplicity and sisterly love. We are the compassionate, joyful servants of Our Lord.

This may be the time for you to learn more about your Vocation and Call to Religious Life.

You can join us in spirit with adoration and prayer, we may not meet immediately but have no fear to call or contact our Vocation Director

Contact Sr. Michael Francine Duncan for more information or if you have questions about other discernment opportunities. Then, at an appropriate time, you can meet the Sisters and hear their stories and experience living as a Sister of St. Mary of Oregon.

With God, all is possible.
