What is a Sister? A religious sister is a woman who has been consecrated to God through the Church, responding to His invitation of love through vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. Each religious sister belongs to a particular religious community, serving God and the Church and world in a distinct way. A religious sister is truly a bride of Jesus Christ the greatest Lover and a spiritual mother of an enormous family–over 6.8 billion worldwide!

Do young women still become sisters? The answer is yes . . . but, why? Simple: they have fallen in love!  A religious sister is a bride and a mother who has uncovered the deepest desire of her heart: to follow Christ in a life-long adventure for the Glory of God and the Salvation of Souls!
