adoration in the heart of the busy urban center. We
seek to live a unique blend of traditional yet modern
contemplative monastic life, sharing our witness in
fraternal community, prayer, hospitality, and work “in
the heart of the city,” while striving to dwell always
“in the heart of God.” Our liturgy draws from the
Byzantine and Orthodox tradition, and is sung in
four-part harmony by the brothers and sisters. We
work part-time in the city to earn our income and
to live in solidarity, thus allowing us to better “bring
the city into our prayer, and our prayer to the city.”

Little Company of Mary Sisters (L.C.M.) We, the Little Company of Mary Sisters, are an international congregation amed for the little group of faithful
followers who remained in the company of Mary, the

and dying in our midst, and by constant prayer for
the sick and dying of the world. We welcome single

Little Servant Sisters of the Immaculate Conception
(L.S.I.C.) Little Servant Sisters were founded in
Poland by a deeply spiritual man and lay apostle—
Blessed Edmund Bojanowski in 1850. Inspired
by his outstanding love of God and neighbor and
devotion to Mary Immaculate, we follow his charism
in communal life in USA, Philippines, Poland, Africa,
Asia and various countries in Europe. Little Servant
Sisters arrived in the USA in 1926 and have been
working here in different apostolates committed
to: children, the underprivileged, the sick and the
elderly. The sisters work in preschools and schools,
religious education centers, assisted living, nursing
homes, and hospitals. Those seeking entrance must

chastity, poverty and obedience and do God’s will with
great love, accompanied by good physical, mental

Little Sisters of Jesus and Mary (L.S.J.M.) The Little Sisters of Jesus and Mary are an active-contemplative
community of religious women called
to meet Christ in the poor, in one another, in the
created world and in the Eucharist. Embracing the
spirituality of Charles de Foucauld, our mission is
to Cry the Gospel with our lives. We live in
community; daily Eucharist, morning and evening
prayer, adoration, service and hospitality are
hallmarks of our life. Our apostolate includes a crisis
center for the poor, a soup kitchen, a residential
program for homeless men, a representative payee
program and a good neighbor program. We were
founded in 1974 by Sr. Mary Elizabeth Gintling who
described our community as women “loving God
together”, and as “wounded people healing
wounded people”. Please contact: Sr. Connie Ladd,

Little Sisters of the Poor (L.S.P.) We are an

Jugan, one of our Church’s newest saints (canonized

is what counts. . .Never forget that the poor are Our
Lord; it is Jesus whom you care for in them.” Through
our vocation we wish to give quiet witness to the
dignity of every human life, until the very end. The

Medical Mission Sisters (M.M.S.) Medical Mission Sisters are women full of passion...for wholeness, for justice, for life. Like our Foundress,
Anna Dengel, M.D., “it eats us up” when individuals
and communities are denied the resources and
opportunities they need to live as human beings. In
our broken, wounded world, Medical Mission Sisters
are called to live as a healing presence. We try to bring
about a world where all live in harmony and no one
is in want. We try to live as Jesus did, with care and
compassion for all. Our 600 Sisters and 80 Associates
partner with others in 17 nations today to help build
one world where the gifts of all people, all cultures,
all creation are affirmed and celebrated. If you would

Medical Missionaries of Mary (M.M.M.) Inspired
by our Blessed Mother’s visit to her cousin Elizabeth,
the Medical Missionaries of Mary (MMM) follow
her example, bringing Christ’s healing love to those
most in need. Sustained by prayer and community
life, each sister, in self-surrender, seeks God through
a life-long commitment of poverty, celibacy, and
obedience in service to the sick, poor, marginalized
and most neglected of our world. MMM is particularly
drawn to those services that heal and empower
women. MMM presently serve in nine African
countries, Brazil and Honduras ministering in a
variety of professional capacities such as midwives,
nurses, doctors, social services, administrators and
various pastoral ministries. The sisters strive to
identify, respect and affirm cultural differences and
wisdom with particular regards to health and healing.
Primary Health Care, in continuous dialogue with
the local people, is a MMM priority. Contact: Sr. Joan
