With humility, patience and genuine love for God, one can accomplish everything that God wants of us.
– St. Maria De Mattias, ASC foundress

The Adorers of the Blood of Christ (ASC) do varied types of work in the world.

Many of our sisters continue the ASC legacy of education and health care. We tutor children who struggle with English as a second language, serve as principals, and teach and head academic departments at universities.

Others of us are paralegals, seamstresses and quilters, social workers, pastoral and campus ministers, spiritual directors, nurses, pharmacists, therapists, community activists, missionaries, archivists, and artists. We’ve even had a firefighter among us.

We also serve on the boards of many non-profit organizations, including those we founded, from Newman University in Wichita, Kansas, to senior-care care facilities in Columbia, Pennsylvania; Mulvane, Kansas; and David City, Nebraska.

We believe each Adorer is uniquely called to her professional life and the work of reconciliation achieved through her talents and skills.
