These settings include preschools, parishes, tutoring centers or graduate programs; studios, prisons, immigrant centers or clinics; leading processes that guide communities to choose a Gospel path, or directing programs that promote systemic change.

    The legacy of faith, vision and courage of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary is enkindled in our ministries. Through your prayers or financial support, the Sisters continue the work that was begun more than 150 years ago by Blessed Marie Rose Durocher: full development of the human person through education, social justice, contemplation, and the arts.
