Prayer for Life in Our Nation’s Capital
The Sisters of Life recently expanded our presence in Washington, D.C! St. Clare’s Convent and Eucharistic Chapel is the new home for our House of Studies and Mission of Prayer and Intercession. Here we are taking up a mission of Prayer and Intercession on behalf of our nation and the world, fulfilling our Founder Cardinal O’Connor’s vision to spend sustained periods of prayer each day to bring about a restoration of a sense of the sacredness of all human life. Prayer is the foundation upon which we can build a new and lasting culture of life and civilization of love. Please join us.

Call Upon Mary

On May 13th, the 100th anniversary of the apparition of Mary in Fatima, Mother Agnes Mary, S.V. had the honor of delivering the commencement address to graduates of Thomas Aquinas College in Santa Paula, CA. She called upon the 91 graduates to entrust their lives—and their dreams—to Mary, saying,

“There is no immutable destiny, either for individuals, nations or cultures. Mary exhorts us to call upon her to assist us in realizing God’s dreams for our lives and for the world… Graduates, dare to dream of living the high calling for which you were created as the central focus of your life. Every human life, as you know, is a question — as our Hoy father Pope John Paul II would put it — to which the assent and the gift of one’s love, given and received, totally and unreservedly, is the answer. Love is, therefore, the fundamental and innate vocation of every human being…”
