The Apostolic Sisters

The apostolate of the Apostolic Sisters of Saint John is fulfilled in communion with the Bishop of the Diocese, in a life of evangelization; it involves first of all the witness to a life of adoration, of contemplation and of fraternal charity overflowing into hospitality and spiritual help in all its forms. In a life all given to Jesus through Mary and through Saint John, they complete in their own way the apostolate of their Brothers, by their merciful deeds and their teaching.

The Apostolic Sisters of Saint John strive to be both hidden in God with Christ, through Mary, and witnesses of God’s love for mankind. Their apostolate begins with the sign of their consecrated life, in prayer, in both manual and intellectual work.

The Contemplative Sisters

A permanent desert in the heart of Mary is needed in order that the demands of contemplative life, thus of desert, which is written in the Brothers’ Rule of Life, might be fully lived. Indeed the desert for the Brothers is not a withdrawing far away from everything, but a discovery of the mystery of the new desert: the desert of Jesus, with Mary at the foot of the Cross.

However, because of their apostolic demands, the Brothers cannot live this mystery in a continual way and as often as they would like. That is why it is necessary that there be Contemplative Sisters within the Family of Saint John   who live in a full and exclusive way the mystery of Mary at the foot of the Cross. Mary made known to John this mystery; she now lives it in glory and wants to give it to her children.”[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Contact The Contemplative Sisters” style=”flat” shape=”square” link=”url:mailto%3Asoeurmariefrancois%40gmail.com|||”][vc_column_text]
