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 January

Lord Jesus, as You once called the first disciples to make them fishers of men, let your sweet invitation continue to resound: Come, follow Me!

Give young men and women the grace of responding quickly to Your voice. Support our bishops, priests and consecrated people in their apostolic labor.

Grant perseverance to our seminarians and to all those who are carrying out the ideal of a life totally consecrated to Your service.

Awaken in our community a missionary eagerness. Lord, send workers to Your harvest and do not allow humanity to be lost for the lack of pastors, missionaries and people dedicated to the cause of the Gospel.

Mary, Mother of the Church, the model of every vocation, help us to say "yes" to the Lord Who calls us to cooperate in the divine plan of salvation. (Saint John Paul II)
