"BRING TO ALL THE SMILE OF GOD"
SSV are enlivened by their belief that God is pleased to see His children fully alive!
SSV Sisters live the Gospel of Mary's Visitation to her cousin Elizabeth. The Sisters are inspired to serve the most vulnerable brother in their community.
SSV programs are designed to answer the different needs of the people they serve with the vision of empowering each person's unique gifts and abilities as a child of God.
