We invite you to walk with us in friendship, as we live out our mission to make known the goodness and kindness of the Savior.
Our Apostolate of Prayer Ministry is a precious gift and sacred trust to hold your special intentions in our hearts as we pray privately and in community.
Our charism as Sisters of the Divine Savior is to be rooted in Jesus, the Savior, as we share His Mission of worldwide evangelization with simplicity and trust in God.
The mission of the Sisters of the Divine Savior is to make known the goodness and kindness of Jesus, Savior of the world, and to foster an awareness of a loving God among peoples in whatever place and by whatever means the Spirit of God inspires.
As women of faith striving to be given over to our God and open to all peoples, we collaborate to promote justice and to improve quality of life in our world with a preferential option for the poor.
The Sisters of the Divine Savior live out our mission in many ways, often in collaboration with Salvatorian priests and brothers and Lay Salvatorian women and men. Get to know us by reading about our ministries and following our Salvatorian Sentiments blog. You can also read archived copies of our Salvatorian News that mails out twice a year.

Let Us Pray for You
We'll hold your special intentions in our hearts through our Apostolate of Prayer Ministry.
Prayer is the most precious gift we can give to one another.
My core beliefs:
God is love.
God is not “out there” or “up there.”
God is above, below, before, behind, beside, around, within.
I don’t need a megaphone to yell to God:
“May I have your attention, please,”
nor do I need to beg God to listen to me.
God is always listening.
I don’t have to explain things to God; God knows.
I owe a lot of gratitude to God.
I have done things I shouldn’t have done.
There are things I should have done that I didn’t do.
I need to ask God’s forgiveness.
I need to offer God all my love.
I need to let God love me.
I need to love myself.
I need to love everyone/everything else.
