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. They strive to renew and refresh parish life, and the local community their witness, and through Adoration of the Eucharist, parish Catechesis, and a religious presence at parish and community events.

advent traveling to bethlehem

Advent is a time of preparation for the coming of Our Savior.  He comes to be born anew by His grace and love in the hearts of all men, but alas, few recognize in Him their Divine Redeemer, or love Him as their God-made man.  During this season let us give witness to how God reigns in our lives and in the world.  Let us make this journey to Bethlehem with Mary, and ask her to show us more fully, “the fruit of her womb, Jesus!”  As we hear the gospels reflect those tremendous moments of our salvation at each Sacrifice of the Mass, let us devote ourselves to bringing the joy of the Savior's birth to others, through our smiles, wishes of a “Merry Christmas” and those hidden acts of charity for the poor and unfortunate.
