The religious sister is called to witness that a life of intimate communion with God is possible. Her oneness with Him, in response to His calling, lifts up the people of God and gives hope in our time. The sister, the Bride of Christ, gifts herself to Him completely through the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. She seeks to live the life of charity, to esteem the goodness of her Beloved, which spills over into her relationships with others.
“The aim of religious life is to render praise and glory to the Most Holy Trinity and through your consecration to help humanity enter into the fullness of life in the Father, and in the Son and in the Holy Spirit. In all your planning and in all your activities, try also to keep this aim before you. There is no greater service you can give; there is no greater fullfillment you can receive.”
-Servant of God John Paul the Great
“Though the mountains leave their place and the hills be shaken, My love shall never leave you nor my covenant of peace be shaken, says the Lord, who has mercy on you. ” (Isaiah 54:10)

SOLT Sisters Paschal Mystery Retreat
“The Paschal Mystery of Christ’s cross and Resurrection stands at the center of the Good News that the apostles, and the Church following them, are to proclaim to the world. God’s saving plan was accomplished “once for all” by the redemptive death of his Son Jesus Christ.” -CCC 571
One of the ways the Sisters of Our Lady unite themselves to their Spouse, Jesus Christ, and proclaim the Good News is by participating in the Paschal Mystery Retreat. This retreat was developed by Fr. Flanagan, SOLT Founder. Rooted in the Gospels, the retreat allows the Sisters to join Jesus in His suffering, death and Resurrection in an intimate way. Each week, from Thursday evening until Sunday morning, at least one Sister will be on this retreat. Please pray for our Sisters as they enter into retreat and be assured that they will be praying for you and the salvation of all souls.
