Our Mission

We are called by God to be a presence inflamed within our world, witnessing to God’s love through prayer, joyful witness and loving service. Our mission is a God-given mission which overflows from each sister’s profound life of prayer.

“True compassion does not marginalize, humiliate or exclude and does not celebrate the passing away of a patient.”

-Pope Francis

The Miami Heat surprised our Sister Margaret Ann with a pep rally celebrating her work at Archbishop Coleman Carroll High School, especially in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.
