Become an Adorer

Are you ready to be a Compassionate Presence?

Our sisters are paralegals, principals, professors, pharmacists, spiritual directors, artists, social workers, missionaries and more, each using her God-given talents, skills and desires for the good of the world.

While you may hear that religious life is dying out, we respectfully disagree. We Adorers of the Blood of Christ hear God’s Spirit calling us to continued life as compassionate and reconciling forces in the modern world. We are alive and strong and are needed more than ever to help bring about Christ’s promise of justice, love and peace.

We are here to support you as you discern your vocation, wherever it leads. If you feel a call to explore religious life with the Adorers, we would love to talk to you and answer your questions.

Start by filling out our “Getting Acquainted” form that is sent directly to our Vocations Director Lori Benge. Start a conversation about your future. Who knows where it may lead you?

Sr. Morgan talks about “falling in love” with religious life.
