Vocations

If God has gifted you with a love for the poor and a desire to know him more deeply, he may be offering you the precious gift of a vocation to consecrated life. We’d be happy to speak to you and accompany you in your discernment.

With the recent canonization of our Mother Foundress and the ever increasing population of older persons, our vocation is more relevant than ever. Saint Jeanne Jugan often said, “What happiness for us to be a Little Sister of the Poor!” We feel the same way today, and we are eager to share our joy with you.

For more information, please contact Sr. Kathleen at sclsp@littlesistersofthepoor.org , or call (570) 343-4065.
