We are sisters to each other; precious to each other. Not because we are necessarily best friends, but because we are called to be here for each other. We commit to this process of living together a life that is sometimes difficult and often delightful. God transforms and redeems us through each other, much like married couples transform and redeem each other.
While prayer is the anchor of our life together, we are also called to community living that supports our mission. We learn love and openness with each other's differences; we celebrate moments together with special meals, with play, with outings, and sometimes with retreats together. And we are always open to the possibility of having others with us for a few days or even longer.
