Welcome!

We invite you to walk with us in friendship, as we live out our mission that all may know the Savior.

Prayer Requests

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

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.

Our Mission

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.

Prayer Requests

Prayer is the most precious gift we can give to one another.

Prayer at a Sacred Space

We gather together here in this small sanctuary, a space we have tended and planted. It is a space in which we have placed our hopes for the Earth and for the creatures that are our relatives. We stand in awe of the ways small things- like seeds and soil, water and sunlight, birds and bees and other pollinators- can make a difference in Life. We stand in gratitude for the glorious gift of creation. We ask God’s help as we learn how to more deeply care for our world.

God of all creation,
Your spirit dances throughout the universe.
You give drink to the trees,
Shade to the birds,
Food to the hungry.
You bring life and you make all things holy.
Fill us also with your grace,
Empower us with your Spirit
So that we may not only sow
Seeds of life-giving flowers
But also
Seeds of love, justice, peace, and beauty.
We ask this through your Son,
Jesus, Savior of the World.
Amen
