For many years, the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart were known as educators and nurses. Today, we continue in those ministries in modified roles and a variety of settings. Here we share some of the more creative ways our Sisters meet different needs in our modern world.

“For even the Son of man came, not to be ministered to, but to minister…”     Mk 10:45




Driven by love

Sister Joan Marie McCann, 2011 transplant recipient and volunteer driver for the Gift of Life Family House, Philadelphia

“I want to give back, to support the transplant community. I drive transplant patients to and from their appointments. I don’t just drive, though. I reach out to them with reassurance and hope, compassion they need at this often frightening time in their life journey.”
