The Sisters of Life is a contemplative/apostolic religious community of women founded in 1991 by John Cardinal O’Connor for the protection and enhancement of the sacredness of every human life. The sisters are consecrated by a fourth vow to protect and enhance the sacredness of human life.
Participation in the Holy Mass, chanting the Liturgy of the Hours, recitation of the rosary, and a common Eucharistic holy hour are included in the daily life of the sisters.
Our missions are carried out with the hope of revealing to those we serve the inherent beauty of their own lives, so that they may see and experience the truth that they are made in the image and likeness of God. Our apostolic works include welcoming women who are pregnant to live with us; assisting pregnant women in need; inviting those who have suffered abortion to hope and healing; spiritual retreats; staffing the New York Archdiocesan Family Life/Respect Life Office; and by evangelizing on the charism of life throughout the country and around the world.
Our convents are located in New York, Connecticut, Washington, DC, Colorado, and Ontario, Canada.
