Daily Life

daily-2 The Sisters of St. Margaret

Our lives as Sisters of St. Margaret are guided by the principle, “Love first, Love midst, Love last.” We take vows of poverty, celibate chastity, and obedience, and constantly renew our commitment to spiritual growth, listening for the voice of God in all circumstances.

The central work of the community is worship and prayer, the foundation of our daily life. John Mason Neale, our Founder, put it this way, “Without prayer you can no more lead this life than a living being can exist without air.”

The Eucharist provides the pattern for our daily lives. As Jesus took bread, blessed it, and broke it, so our lives are taken, blessed, broken, and given through our varied ministries. As we work with inner city children, serve a Spanish-speaking congregation, care for the indigent elderly, and do parish work, we seek always to live as Christ’s hands and heart in this world.
