civilization of love. Following in the footsteps of
our Foundress, Nano Nagle, whose family motto
was, “not words but deeds” we are women of prayer,
women in community and women for mission.
We are women who are people oriented, prayerful,
and open to the needs of the day with ministries
as diverse as the gifts we bring to community life.
We minister in education, health care, catechesis,
pastoral and youth ministries, social justice, direct
service with the poor and are advocates for those
without voice such as immigrants. The deeds and
words of our foundress who said, “If I could be of
service in any part of the world I would gladly go
there willingly. . .” inspire and motivate us to go
one pace beyond into the future. We invite you to
join us. Contact: Sr. Laura Urbano PBVM, e-mail:

Sisters of the Resurrection (C.R.) God called a
mother and daughter to form a religious congregation of women immersed in the spirit of Jesus’
Resurrection. As Sisters of the Resurrection, we
are women of prayer and of the church who believe
deeply in the presence of the Risen Christ. We have
given our lives to God in joy through a vowed commitment of chastity, poverty, and obedience. In our
education and health care ministries, we strive to
imitate the example of Jesus’ love, compassion, and
concern for others. We believe that God continues
to call women to live as Sisters of the Resurrection
and we invite you to prayerfully consider whether
this could be true for you. New York Province: Sr.

Sisters of Transfiguration Hermitage We are a monastic, contemplative
community, following the Rule of Benedict
in a way of life which nurtures the love of
God in solitude as well as in community. Our life
includes Liturgy of the Hours together as well as
hours for personal prayer and lectio in solitude both
morning and evening. We live by the work of our
hands: making fruitcakes, jams, and other baked
goods, and by writing, offering occasional workshops and retreats, and through the ministry of our
small guest house. Our 68 acres of gardens, fields,
woods, and streams offers a solitary environment
in which to attend to God’s presence. Firmly rooted
in the monastic tradition, we are also open to the
needs and aspirations of contemporary women who
desire to seek God both in silence and solitude and
in the daily life of the community of sisters. Transfiguration Hermitage, 205 Windsor Neck Rd.,

at the heart of our mission. Today, we continue to
serve as educators in the broadest sense of the word

care, social work, pastoral care, parish administration, and law. In the U.S., the Society sponsors 14

love in the world through education, working for
justice and guiding lives in faith. Religious of the
Sacred Heart serve in teaching and formation, in
pastoral and spiritual work and in other ministries
that promote justice and human development.
