Our Charism

Today’s Sisters of the Holy Names endeavor to embody and exemplify the spirit and charism of Sister Marie Rose through ministries that focus on educating and empowering people, with special concern for the poor and disadvantaged. SNJM Sisters still fulfill the traditional role of educator (teaching and administering in elementary schools, secondary schools, colleges and universities) but have expanded the definition of "educator" to meet the evolving needs of the Church and the world.

Today’s SNJM Sisters teach people of all ages and backgrounds. We can be found ministering in community centers as well as in parishes. We provide adult education and leadership training. We work to heal and nurture the human spirit by providing spiritual direction, leading retreats, and offering counseling and pastoral care in prisons, hospitals, clinics, and other care facilities.
