We are an emerging community of consecrated life established in Michigan, (Diocese of Saginaw), May, 2010 under the direction of the Most Reverend Bishop Joseph Cistone, DD. The sisters endeavor to live and work for the fulfillment of the prayer of Jesus on the night before He suffered: "that they may be one" and "For their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be consecrated in truth."
Through the evangelical vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, the Sisters reflect more fully this "consecration in truth" which Christ accomplished by his Death and Resurrection. Together with Mary, Mother of Divine Grace; they seek to be sharers in this death, for the sake of others, which brought forth fruits of grace to a new life.
St. Mary's convent is located in Port Sanilac, MI, where the Sisters serve local parishes in the "thumb of Michigan." Known in the area, as the Sisters of St. Mary's, they pray their presence will inspire new hope to others, as they seek to share the joy of serving God and giving witness to the light and love of Christ. Through their work they strive to renew and refresh parish life, through Adoration of the Eucharist, parish Catechesis, and a religious presence at parish events.
Closing of the Year of Mercy......
From Pope Francis: "In light of the “great graces of mercy” we have received during the Jubilee, our first response is to give thanks to the Lord for His gifts. But in going forward, we must also continue to celebrate mercy, especially in the liturgical celebrations of the Church, including in the Sacrifice of the Mass, and in the other Sacraments, especially in Reconciliation and in Anointing of the Sick, the two “sacraments of healing.” ( Excerpt from the Apostolic Letter, Misericordia et Misera)
Continue to perform the Spiritual and Corporal works of Mercy, and show forth the mercy of Our Heavenly Father to all you meet.
