Our Approach to Vocation Ministry

Individually and as a community we seek through the witness of our lives to awaken and foster vocations.
GNSH Constitutions, Article 38

As Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart we acknowledge the responsibility of the individual to attract others to vowed membership in the congregation for the continued expression of the charism of St. Marguerite d’Youville. As a Congregation, our efforts are focused through the Vocation Ministry office and the Committee for the Incorporation of New Members.

As a Congregation we seek:

• Women possessing a willing and cooperative spirit and good health, who evidence the maturity to participate in the mission and ministry of the Congregation
• Women embracing the charism of Marguerite d’Youville as a frame for their own life of prayer and ministry, and for the future well-being of all Creation.
• Women willing to trust in Divine Providence and live a life of unfolding mystery as signs of God’s constant and unconditional love for every person.

With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we work collaboratively with one another, and with other religious communities to invite, to discern with, and to prepare, women who are willing to journey into the unknown tomorrow together with us.
