My Sisters: An opportunity to grow in the faith with religious sisters

Courtesy Daughters of St. Paul

Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble - published on 02/05/18

Daughters of St. Paul launching new "portable sacred space."

I don’t mean to brag. Well actually I do. I am proud of my sisters at the Daughters of Saint Paul. The sisters are accessible, zealous, joyful, strong, and funny.

During my first visit to one of our convents, I thought, “This feels like family.” And that is part of the special charism of our sisters: we invite people in, we never make people feel like they are the sinners and we are the holy ones. Like Saint Paul, we readily admit our brokenness. We walk alongside and truly love the people of God.

Our Pauline charism calls us to use the most modern means available to preach the Gospel. We speak in everyday language about everyday issues. We are with the Church in the heart of the modern world. We are everyone’s sisters—prayerful, approachable, trusted.

Have you ever met a Daughter of Saint Paul? Perhaps you’ve gone to one of our bookstores around the country. Maybe you’ve met us at one of our book fairs at your parish, or at a conference, or a talk. Or perhaps you’ve never met a Daughter of Saint Paul.

One of our new projects, My Sisters, can change that.

My Sistersis a digital space where our sisters can meet all the people we cannot meet through our books or in person. My Sistersis a portable and accessible “sacred space” where you can get to know our sisters and be inspired by them. In this space, you can ask big questions, explore the faith, and nurture your identity as God’s beloved, no matter where you are in your walk with the Lord.

My Sisters provides:

  • A community of faith to journey and pray with
  • Weekly guided spiritual mentorship
  • A changing library of video and audio resources
  • Retreats in a format perfect for busy people
  • Tips, inspiration, and encouragement for your life of prayer
  • Support for living the Christian life in today’s world
  • A private Facebook Group
  • Exclusive pre-release 30 percent discount on all new books from Pauline Publishing

Right now, you can access the community of My Sisterswith a one dollar donation.

If you would like to learn more, check out of this new venture or visit the My Sisters website.

My Sisterswill be your companions and mentors on life’s greatest journey: the journey to union with Christ.

Hope to see you there!
