Community of the Sisters of the Church


In each of our houses, prayer is at the heart of full and active lives: preaching, teaching, cooking, gardening, psychotherapy, Spiritual Direction, working with women on the streets... we serve as we are called.

We are very different from one another, come from different backgrounds, different nationalities and we haven’t chosen one another, so there are many opportunities for tolerance and ‘forbearing one another in love’ as St. Paul says. We’re not a cosy little group who think alike on any and every issue, but a community where living together, making decisions, can not only be costly but very enriching. 

St. Paul says ‘God reconciled us to himself through Christ and has given us the ministry of reconciliation.’ (2 Cor 5:18) and we believe that the striving to live together lovingly and fruitfully, seeking as a community to listen to the Spirit’s leading as to the way forward in our life and ministries, can be a true contribution to the world’s need of reconciliation.
