Do you have the real courage to follow Jesus? Join the Sisters of Mary...

OUR PURPOSE is to follow Christ more fervently in praying and more closely in proclaiming the Kingdom, by doing good to people; concretely by providing free:

- educational/vocational welfare for the underprivileged children / youth
- medical care to the sick and the dying
- shelter services to the homeless and helpless.

If you have a strong desire to serve the Lord and help the poorest of the poor and fulfill the message of the Virgin of the Poor of relieving the suffering, we invite you to join us.


These words from the Psalms are the motto of the Sisters of Mary.

The Sisters of Mary was founded in Korea in 1964 by the Servant of God, Msgr. Al Schwartz. Their purpose is to serve the poorest of the poor in the Name of Christ.

The Sisters of Mary can be described as "contemplatives in action". That is, they strive to unite the vocations of Martha and Mary. Their active life of service to the poor is balanced by three hours of daily prayer and contemplation.

After approximately four years of formation, the Sisters profess the vows of poverty, chastity, obedience and service to the poor. These vows are renewed each year at the end of the annual retreat.

Through the invitation of the ecclesiastical and government authorities, the sisters have expanded from Korea to the Philippines, Mexico, Guatemala, Brazil and recently in Honduras. At present, they care for tens of thousands of needy children and adults in their charity boarding schools, Day Care Centers, Clinics and Hospitals.

With the inspiration of the Virgin of the Poor, who appeared in Banneux, Belgium, they do their best to fulfill her message of relieving the suffering of the poor. The material and spiritual needs of people continue to increase, thus there is an urgent need for more generous and dedicated young women to join them in this life of service and prayer.

Candidates should be between the ages of 18 and 35; college or high school graduate; be in good health; and above all, have a sincere desire to serve the poor with the heart, mind and spirit of Christ.

Come now and join them, please write, phone or visit personally:
