The Sisters of the Holy Spirit are a community of women religious dedicated in a special way to the Holy Spirit. It is the Spirit of Jesus who leads us in our efforts to provide witness of Gospel values here on earth. As Sisters of the Holy Spirit we commit ourselves to be Christ-like for others and with joy-filled hearts to take Christ to others through our ministries of spiritual formation and renewal, pastoral ministry, pre-ordination formation, retreat work, Catholic education, care of the sick and elderly, social services, assistance to the homebound elderly, and other works related to these ministries. We honor and seek to imitate Mary, the Mother of God: a woman totally open to the Holy Spirit in her fidelity and response to the will of God. As a community we strive to make the Holy Spirit known and loved in the world through our own lives wherever we are called to serve.
