Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George

Making the merciful love of Christ visible


Veni Si Amas ~ Come if you love Pope Benedict XVI with our Sisters at the Nunciature in Washington, DC

The monstrance in our Adoration chapel says, "Veni Si Amas." This Latin phrase means, "Come if you love." Jesus invites each of us to follow him more closely - to open ourselves to receiving His love and to give His love to others.

Throughout the year, many young women come in contact with our Religious Community. Many are actively searching out God’s will, listening to His call in their lives. 

Would you like to do the same?  If you are interested in knowing more about our Community, we invite you to complete the Vocational Inquiry.

"If we let Christ into our lives,

we lose nothing, nothing, absolutely nothing of what makes life free, beautiful and great. 

I say to you, dear young people:

Do not be afraid of Christ! He takes nothing away, and he gives you everything. 

When we give ourselves to him, we receive a hundredfold in return. 

Yes, open, open wide the doors to Christ – and you will find true life."

 ~  Pope Benedict XVI, April 24, 2005


We joyfully welcome into our Community those who have the following qualifications:

1.  Between the ages of 18 and 30 (exceptions can be made) 

2.  In good physical, mental, and moral health 

3.  Appropriate personal maturity

Prayer for Vocations for the Month of March

Hail, Blessed St. Joseph, beloved spouse of the Virgin Mother of God, adopted Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! You happily close the list of holy patriarchs. You who are most profound in humility, firm in faith and hope, eager in love and zeal, pure in soul and body, and alike in all other virtues to your spouse, the Mother of God, pray for me and mine. Pray especially beloved St. Joseph, for the reception of novices into our Congregation. Pray that God may increase their number and their piety that, becoming more fervent and more perfect, they may, in our days, augment the number of His faithful servants. Pray for us, too, that we who are already consecrated to Jesus Christ may live in love for Him and for each other, making up a true Community of Christian love and faith.  Amen.
