What Makes the Daughters of St. Paul Unique?

Each religious congregation has a unique identity that is formed by its founders, its history, its charism (spirituality and mission), and its members. The life of a Daughter of St. Paul is distinctive in several ways, for each sister is called:

  • To live an authentic and profound relationship with Jesus who is the Way, Truth, and Life, allowing Jesus to transform her so that she can share her experience of Christ with others
  • To dedicate her whole being to communicate Christ through the media: to listen to the heartaches of humanity and to respond with the Gospel in a way that is accessible and relevant to ordinary people and their needs today
  • To blend contemplation and mission in an integrated lifestyle that brings the needs of humanity to Jesus in the Eucharist and then brings the Eucharistic Master to the world 
  • To attentively dialogue with others—with men and women of all cultures, languages, and religions—and to transparently and fearlessly offer the Gospel of hope so that society may be transformed

Sr. Margaret Michael explains our unique charism as Daughters of Saint Paul:
