If God has gifted you with a love for the poor and a desire to know him more deeply, he may be offering you the precious gift of a vocation to consecrated life. We’d be happy to talk with you about how to serve and to accompany you in your discernment.

With the recent canonization of our Foundress, Saint Jeanne Jugan, and the ever increasing population of older persons, our vocation is more relevant than ever. Saint Jeanne Jugan often said, "What happiness for us, to be a Little Sister of the Poor!" We feel the same way today and we’re eager to share our joy with you.

Steps you might take in discerning whether God is calling you to serve and to follow Saint Jeanne Jugan as a Little Sister of the Poor:

  • Read more about our consecrated life and our mission of hospitality to the elderly poor by visiting our national website
  • Arrange to visit us for Mass, or another moment of prayer, and a tour of St. Anne’s Home.
  • Volunteer some of your time with the elderly.
