Who we are and what we do is grounded in a dynamic belief that our loving God became fully human in the person of Jesus.

Sisters of the Holy Spirit and Mary Immaculate (SHSp)

Faithful to our charism to manifest the compassion of Jesus, we offer our lives and service through the church and listen to the challenge of the church to us to be a prophetic voice for change and transformation in a world of injustice and poverty.
