Picture Yourself In Ministry

Ministry Opportunities Consolidated

God calls us to use the skills we have been given in a variety of ways. Below is a sample of some of the professions in which sisters minister. If you don't see your expertise mentioned email us sharing the gifts you can bring. Or, if you need a bit of guidance, refer to the "HELP ME CHOOSE" tab to determine your preferences - we're also glad to help you personally.

Do not be afraid to go and to bring Christ into every area of life, to the fringes of society, even to those who seem farthest away, most indifferent." - Pope Francis
