Perpetual Profession of Vows

On August 6, 2016, six of our Sisters professed perpetual vows of poverty, chastity, obedience, and to protect and enhance the sacredness of all human life. His Excellency, Bishop John O’Hara, auxiliary bishop of New York, presided over the mass at the Basilica of St. John the Evangelist in Stamford, CT for the occasion. Joined by hundreds of family and friends for the celebration, Mother Agnes Mary joyfully received the vows of Sr. Maria Emmanuel, Sr. Brigid Ancilla Marie, Sr. Grace Dominic, Sr. María Laetitia, Sr. Ann Catherine, and Sr. Maeve Nativitas. May God be praised!

Celebrating 25 Years of God’s Grace

On June 1st, 1991, the Sisters of Life were
founded by His Eminence John Cardinal O’Connor,
the then-Archbishop of New York. On that day eight
women entered the fledgling community that has
now grown to nearly 100 members.
