Welcome and thanks for visiting!

The Sisters of the Sorrowful Mother both serve and empower
the poor by sharing God's love through ministry and prayer.
We are skilled teachers, compassionate caregivers, attentive
counselors, caring friends and gentle companions to those in
need--the sick, the poor, the young, the old and those in crisis.

Inspired by St. Francis, St. Clare and our Foundress, Mother
Frances Streitel, we live simply, give generously, and have a
deep respect and loving concern for all of creation. Through
prayer and work, we bring fuller life to others. 

Our Sisters can be found in the United States, the Caribbean
islands of Grenada, St. Lucia, Trindad and the Dominician
Republic, Germany, Italy, Austria, Brazil and Tanzania.
