In the spirit of St. Marguerite d'Youville, our foundress, the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart strive to be signs of God's unconditional love as we collaborate to create a more just and compassionate world. Our overriding concern is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus to all, especially the poor and needy of our world.
Prayer is the spiritual nucleus of our lives as Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart and our Chapel is the physical center of our spirituality. Embraced in the quiet presence of God we create a compassionate world through prayer. Our retired sisters respond to daily requests for prayer, devoting themselves to a Ministry of Prayer.
Is your heart restless? Do you see God in the outcast and the stranger? Inspired by such feelings, a young, Catholic widow Marguerite d’Youville lived a life of service. Over the centuries, many have walked in her footsteps as vowed members and partners in ministry. They gave without counting the cost. Will you?
