Christ is the heart of our community.
from the Constitutions
2400 Daughters of St. Paul serve in over fifty countries throughout the world.
What has brought together these sisters of different ages, backgrounds, and nationalities? God’s call to a life of holiness and mission in the Pauline charism.
Community life at the service of mission brings us more deeply into the mystery of the Trinity and unites us in love. From St. Paul, the Apostle of Love, we learn to appreciate and love each other in our rich diversity of backgrounds and gifts.
Our communities radiate a warm, family spirit. We want our community life itself to be a vibrant proclamation of the Kingdom—a new way of living together based on faith and the love Jesus calls us to have for one another. “Christ is the heart of our community” (from the Constitutions).
There is a saying, ‘There are as many ideas as there are heads!’ But if we put all these ideas at the service of God and if we love him and one another, then we will all have the same idea! So let us work together—all united in seeking the glory of God and the good of souls…
