"Jesus--Through Him, With Him, and In Him"

Ministries

Like the early canonesses, the Sisters in Jesus the Lord seek to be a presence in parishes by solemnly chanting the liturgy of the hours with the people.

Religious sisters are needed worldwide who, through a witness of heroic holiness in action, will strive to make Jesus, who said, "I am the Truth," known, obeyed, and loved. In our prayer, work, and sacrifices we strive to fulfil our Blessed Mother's desire of reviving the Faith in her beloved Russia.

Sisters in Jesus the Lord is dedicated to being an integral part of the parish, and evangelizing through all types of work, among them prayer and contemplation, sacred music, campus ministry, pro-life work of all kinds, teaching, medical work, care of orphans and elderly, offering retreats, and use of the media especially for evangelization, helping pregnant mothers, and women struggling with post-abortion healing. All our activities are devoted to building strong and vibrant parishes dedicated to making Christ known and loved by devising ways, together with the faithful, of living out faith's essential work of proclaiming the Good News to all, through all types of service.

Those women called to a life devoted to contemplation as their main work, will help the work of evangelization through their life of prayer and penance. By also keeping a prayerful presence of adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the parish church they will teach without words the essential importance of the Blessed Sacrament.

As our community grows, so will its ministries.

"In those days Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country, to a city of Judah, and she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and she exclaimed with a loud cry, 'Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!' "

"The future is yours, but the future is above all a call and a challenge to 'keep' your life by giving it up, by 'losing' it--as the Gospel has reminded us--by sharing it through loving service of others."
