Fraternal Charity
A Typical Weekday

Saint John highlights fraternal charity as being a particular mark of authentic love of God: "The one who does not love God whom he does not see" (1 John 4). For this reason the Sisters desire to live all the demands of love in a life of generous service and cooperation in daily communal living. Each week also includes a study group, chapter, and recreation; the Sisters value these moments as opportunities to live more concretely and personally of fraternal charity.

"By this they will know that you are my disciple
if you have love one for another."

-John 13
