Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George

Making the merciful love of Christ visible

Welcome!

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 November

O Divine Jesus, Son of the Eternal Father and Mary Immaculate, grant to our youth true generosity in following Your call and bestow upon them the grace to persevere in overcoming all obstacles to their vocation.  Give to parents, likewise, that faith, love and spirit of sacrifice which will inspire them to offer their children to God’s service and to rejoice when a child of theirs is called to the religious life.  Let Your example and that of Your Blessed Mother and St. Joseph encourage both children and parents and let Your grace sustain them.  Amen.
