Our Mission

Our Mission

Our Mission of service to the Church and to humankind can be summed up in the prayer that each of us has prayed many times in preparation for our General Chapter of 2007:

God, source of all communion,

We are filled with wonder,

As we contemplate you in constant dialogue

With each of us and all creation.

 

In our longing to be women of dialogue, we pray for a contemplative heart:

A heart filled with respect, recognizing in all people the traces of your presence

A heart that in openness to other religions and cultures is able to celebrate the many different ways of being human

A heart ready to welcome all and willing to remove the barriers we raise through prejudice and lack of understanding

A heart that takes risks in solidarity with the poor, conscious of the need to education for justice and peace

A heart that seeks forgiveness, reconciliation, and unity

 

Giver of life, God beyond all names, give us your prophetic Spirit as we continue to enter into the dialogue of life, walking together with Saint Angela in trust and confidence, striving to realize your kingdom among us

 

More specifically, we are committed to a mission of evangelization, to care for families, for young people, for people at personal and social risk, in defense of life, and of human dignity. All of our educational enterprises are focused toward this end. We are also committed to working toward peace and justice, and the integrity of creation with courage in the face of the challenges we meet in the globalized world.
