Rooted in the Word, We are impelled to be God’s language, Transforming the world we lean into life’s unfolding revelation.
We advocate passionately for the voiceless, risking uncharted paths. We listen in contemplative silence, attending to the call of
Simplicity and presence. We weave a network of connections among diverse peoples and in dissonant situations. (SLW Vision Statement)
“We are called to respond individually, communally, and collaboratively to those areas of society that are in need of a compassionate presence.”
We the Sisters of the Living Word have had a history of courage for more than 40 years. Our mission is to identify and meet the needs of persons who are poor and oppressed.
Today that means walking with the refugee; caring for those escaping human trafficking; educating young teens; and providing a place for spiritual seekers.
