Who We Are

We, Sisters of Social Service, are women of many cultures who come together to fulfill the Gospel call to care for the poor and alienated. The right of all people to live in dignity is at the heart of our work and of our religious faith.

Our lives are blessed by the Benedictine values that respect all people and things, cherish the familial warmth of community, make welcome the stranger, and find joy in work and renewal in prayer. We trust in the guidance of the Holy Spirit as we continue to embark on new ventures in service to people in need.

Associates of the Sisters of Social Service are people who feel a special identity with the spirit and mission of the Community and with their lives express the purpose and the goals for which the Sisters of Social Service was founded.
