“Live Jesus whom I Love”

The Order of the Visitation of Holy Mary has its roots in early seventeenth-century France. Francis de Sales and Jane de Chantal saw the opportunity for the creation of an order that would welcome women seeking a religious vocation in order to deepen their relationship with God.

Our Vowed Life

We, the sisters of the Visitation of Holy Mary, have freely responded to a call to follow Jesus by being gathered in loving prayerful communities that are characterized by fidelity to the gospel and the church.

Our Prayer Life

Live Jesus! Prayer of the heart is the very essence of our Visitation way of life.  We strive to keep prayer at the center of all we do as we nurture the loving presence of God in our minds and hearts.

Our Community Life

We are called by God to create a prayerful and loving community where each Sister is a gift to others.  We find the source and goal of our union in the love of the heart of Jesus Christ, to whom we are consecrated in a special way.

Our History

Reflecting moderation and a well-balanced approach to religious life.

Vocations

Our vocation enables us to share in the redemptive mission of Jesus according to the inspiration of our Founders, St. Francis de Sales and St. Jane de Chantal.

Vocational Ministry: The Gospel values proposed by our Founders St. Francis de Sales and St. Jane de Chantal encourage us to follow Jesus - to "live Jesus!" in all we do and think and say and through each moment of the day. We are called to create a prayerful and loving community where each person is a gift to others. We find the source and goal of our union in the heart of Jesus Christ to whom we are consecrated in a special way.

Solemnity of Pentecost
"Surround your people, Lord, within the safety of your Church, which you preserve on its rock foundation. Do not let us stretch out our hands to evil deeds, nor be destroyed by the insidious snares of the enemy, but bring us to share the lot of the saints in light.The Lord has not given us a timid spirit,but a spirit of strength, of love and of self-control." Amen
