The Sisters of The Good Samaritan - Safeguarding of Children, Young People and Adults at Risk

Prayer and Ministry

For Good Samaritan Sisters, prayer is fundamental to their way of life. A priority is given to communal prayer, to praying together the Liturgy of the Hours (Work of God). Day after day, morning and evening, we gather in union with creation to pray with and for all creation. We hold the earth, its people and its circumstances before God with reverence and expectation that the One who creates is faithful.

We share this communal prayer with other people in a variety of ways: gatherings with Oblates; on special occasions when friends and others are invited.

Each sister finds nourishment also in daily lectio with scripture or other significant texts, in personal prayer and in Eucharist with local parish communities.

We are changed by our prayer. We become, in time, more aware of God’s call in our lives.

So as Good Samaritan Sisters, we respond to the needs of our world, in all the places and circumstances in which we find ourselves.
