Vocations: Are You Interested in Religious Life?
Intimate union with God involves a life of prayerful contemplation fostered by daily Eucharist, Divine Office, personal and communal prayer. Our foundress, Mother Frances Antonia Lampel, realized that a life of active service was most demanding and that prayer and community life must be the source of energy for life. Her service gave witness to her words, "I am here with God for you." We, as her followers, bring the fruits of our prayer life and community experiences into our apostolates.
