Our one apostolate is to nurse incurable cancer patients. This work is'a practical fulfillment of our faith. The most important talent, highly prized by us, is the talent for sharing of yourself- your compassion, your cheerfulness, your faith - with those who have been made so vulnerable and dependent by this dread disease. Not all of our sisters are nurses, but as part of our apostolate, all directly help in the care of the patients. If you think you have a religious vocation and would like to know more about our work and community life, why not plan to visit with us. We would be happy to share with you a day from our lives.
