- Our Community was founded in 1975 with 90 Sisters.
- Sisters of the Living Word is a diocesan Catholic religious congregation.
- Our name is our mission.
- We draw our strength and guidance from the Word of God, Christ himself.
- Our ministry flows from our prayer, is nurtured by the Eucharist, and is driven by the needs of the people around us.
- We educate in Catholic schools, parish ministries and other educational forums.
- We advocate for people through Catholic Social Services and other social movement organizations; we advocate for sustainability by striving to implement the principles laid out in the Earth Charter.
- We minister through retreat work, spiritual direction and healing arts.
- Our areas of ministry are from Minnesota to Louisiana, Florida to Texas, with our headquarters in Arlington Heights, IL, a northwest suburb of Chicago.
