Oblate Sisters of Providence (O.S.P.) The Oblate Sisters
of Providence were founded in 1829 to meet the needs
of Haitian refugees in Baltimore. As the oldest religious
community for women of African descent, we continue
the tradition of education and service to the poor and
neglected begun by our foundress, Mother Mary Lange.
In African American and Latino communities in the
United States and Costa Rica we serve primarily as teachers, school administrators, social workers, catechists and
pastoral associates. Through our ministries we spread the
Good News of Christ by the integrity of our faith, our love
of God and our firm hope and trust in God’s Providence.

Oblate Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
(O.S.H.J.) The Oblate Sisters are a group of women who
strive to attain union with God by offering their lives for
diocesan priests. Their special charism is both spiritual
and ministerial. The sisters are called first of all to pray
for priestly holiness and to offer the joys and sorrows of
their lives for the good of priests. Ministerially the sisters
care for retired and convalescent priests, and collaborate
with them in parish ministry, which includes teaching,
directing religious education, hospital visitation, and
distribution of the Eucharist to the home bound. The
sisters also conduct a preschool and kindergarten, which
is located on their Motherhouse grounds. Sr. Teresina

Our Lady of Victory Missionary Sisters (O.L.V.M.) An
OLVM (Victory Noll) Sister is creative, daring and innovative by the life she lives in response to the missionary
call. She helps others translate their dreams, prayers
and visions into actions by living among the people in a
simple, prophetic life of community and ministry. She is,
like Mary, rooted in the Gospel, standing with Jesus as
a witness to justice issues. She is a vowed religious who
chooses to live out those vows in response to the needs of
the poor and oppressed, especially women. Victory Noll
Sisters do this, not tied to large institutions, but in creative
and diverse ministries. If you would like to explore challenging opportunities to continue the Mission of Jesus as a
Victory Noll Sister, contact Sr. Rose Ann Kaiser, Vocation

Pallottine Missionary Sisters (S.A.C.) [Missionary
Sisters of the Catholic Apostolate] “The love of Christ
impels us” is the motto of our congregation. St. Vincent
Pallotti founded the sisters in Rome as a way to fulfill
the needs of the people of his time. His vision was for
everyone to live out their baptismal call and spread the
Gospel message by any and all means through their unique
God-given gifts. As Pallottines, we are called, just as St.
Vincent was, to empower the laity and to awaken in all
Christians their apostolic call. We live out our consecrated
life through prayer, community living, and apostolic
service. Our ministries vary based on our individual call
and the needs of others. The Pallottines serve in West
Virginia, Maryland, Missouri and 19 other countries.

Pallottine Sisters (C.S.A.C.) [Sisters of the Catholic
Apostolate]—Immaculate Conception Province The
charism of the Pallottines is to awaken in each person
the awareness that God has called us to be apostles. St.
Vincent Pallotti, inspired by the universal call to holiness,
established the Union of the Catholic Apostolate with
priests, brothers, sisters, and laity in 1835 in Rome, Italy.
Pallottines work together to give new life to faith, a new
spark to love, and a new thrust to bringing all to unity in
Jesus Christ. They do this through education of children
and adults, formation programs for the laity, outreach to
immigrants, and collaboration with other groups. As Pallottine Sisters community life, scripture, prayer, and the
Eucharist are a major part of our religious life. We have
missions in Italy, Brazil, Argentina, India, and Mozambique, Africa. For more information, write to Director of
New Membership and Ministry, P.O. Box 767, Harriman,

Parish Visitors of Mary Immaculate We are contem-plative-missionary Sisters, founded in New York City
in 1920 by Mother Mary Teresa Tallon. Our apostolate
of evangelization, religious education and social service
assistance is fired by a life of Eucharistic prayer and love
for Jesus and His Church. Mary’s Visitation to Elizabeth,
and Jesus the Good Shepherd, inspire us as we visit parish
families or catechize children, youth and adults. We seek
especially to befriend and spiritually assist careless and
alienated Catholics while guiding and encouraging Catholic family life. To learn more about us, see our website
