“A vow of hospitality brings our religious consecration into the concrete realities of everyday life. It gives a spiritual value to the many humble tasks performed throughout the day, and enables us to communicate to our elderly Residents God’s compassion and merciful love.”
~ Little Sisters of the Poor
If God has gifted you with a love for the poor and a desire to know him more deeply, he may be offering you the precious gift of a vocation to consecrated life. We’d be happy to talk to you and accompany you in your discernment.
With the recent canonization of our foundress and the ever-increasing population of older persons, our vocation is more relevant than ever. Saint Jeanne Jugan often said, “What happiness for us, to be a Little Sister of the Poor!” We feel the same way today and we are eager to share our joy with you.
