Is My Nature Grateful?


"We have to be grateful for everything! On Thanksgiving Day, how much more we, Sisters of Social Service, should possess the virtue of gratitude. A noble soul will always be grateful. With what shall I show my gratitude to God for what has been done for me, for the graces which have been showered upon me, which keep me faithful and constant!"

Sister Frederica, November 24, 1951, in a letter to the Community

SISTERS OF SOCIAL SERVICE

HELPING TRANSFORM THE LIVES OF THOSE LIVING ON THE MARGINS OF OUR WORLD




Enlivened by the Holy Spirit, we advocate Peace and Justice for the Common Good in light of the Social Mission of the Church. The Sisters of Social Service are women of many cultures. Wanting to fulfill the social mission of the Church, SSS count on the presence of the Spirit of God in engaging with all human beings – ranging from political and legislative systems to caring for the health and well-being of families, especially women and children on every level of society to bring justice into the lives of all. Following the teachings of Jesus in the Gospel, the SSS engage with and on behalf of those who are alienated, struggling, or living in poverty. The rights of all peoples to live in dignity, free from violence, racism, sexism and coercion of every kind is at the heart of our work and of our justice commitment.
