What we do

"The prayer of the Church venerates and honors the Heart of Jesus just as it invokes his most holy name.  It adores the incarnate Word and his Heart, which, out of love for men, he allowed to be pierced by our sins..."                                         (Catechism of the Catholic Church 2669)

Prayer
"Bring all you are suffering to [Jesus]...only open your heart to be loved by Him as you are. He will do the rest."                                -St. Teresa of Calcutta
                                                          
Our personal and communal prayer places us in communion with the entire Church and with the very Heart of God, especially as we recite the Divine Office.  We then can go out and bring the healing love of Jesus to others, inviting them to allow the Lord to connect with their own hearts, bringing restoration and wholeness.

How extraordinarily beautiful and powerful it is to watch this transformation happen, to watch someone becoming increasingly more of who God intended him or her to be: free and alive in Him!

Loving Presence

Every person is created from love and for love. People are desperately lonely and alone in a world of isolation created by a technology that makes interaction virtual and far removed.

 

The human heart craves communion with another. All is made easier when someone holds our hand.

 

There is no greater ‘doing’ than that of ‘being’ with another.

Catechesis
To awaken a soul to the presence of God within and help to form a bond of loving communion that will sustain through the triumphs and tragedies of life does not come from a book or video.

This ‘heart to heart’ connection is wholistic in both presentation and reception.  With this in mind we enter into varied ‘ways of being’ with both young and old, serving as the conduits of the Divine Grace that longs to penetrate the hearts of His people. Our sisters receive formation through the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, and it is from this vantage point that we go forth to proclaim the glory of the risen Lord.
