Vocations

If God has gifted you with a love for the poor and a desire to know Him more deeply, He may be offering you the precious gift of a vocation to consecrated life.  We’d be happy to talk to you and accompany you in your discernment.
With the recent canonization of our foundress and the ever-increasing population of older persons, our vocation is more relevant than ever.  Saint Jeanne Jugan often said, “What happiness for us, to be a Little Sister of the Poor!”  We feel the same way today and we’re eager to share our joy with you.
