SISTERS OF THE GOSPEL OF LIFE
‘The Gospel of Life is at the heart of Jesus’ message. Lovingly received day after day by the Church, it is to be preached with dauntless fidelity as “Good News” to the people of every age and culture.’ Evangelium Vitae 1
We seek to uphold the belief that every person is a unique individual and has infinite dignity conferred on them through their creation in the image and likeness of God.
Inspired by the Gospel of Life we feel called as individuals with our own unique gifts to address creatively and imaginatively and in a way that is radical and dynamic, the needs of Church and society today.
These specific needs concern combating the culture of death by creating a civilisation of love. Our primary mission is to centre our lives on Jesus Christ through a call to personal holiness achieved by a life of prayer and action, the contemplative dimension of which focuses on personal and community prayer, the Sacrifice of the Mass and Adoration.
Through our contemplation, we lovingly embrace the joy of the Cross in the total surrender of our lives. Our community aims to be a witness to the world that Christ came that we might have life and have it to the full.
Each is called to reach a personal freedom through poverty, chastity and obedience and in living lives of simplicity and truth. The community should seek to use the gifts of each member of the community for the greater glory of God, the joy of the individual and the salvation of the world, always in constant fidelity to the Holy Father and the Magisterium of the Church.
The main apostolate is the promotion of the dignity of the human being, particularly as regards the role of the family, the sanctity of motherhood, a renewed understanding of the complementarity of the sexes and catechesis. Our prime model in this is Our Lady, Mother of the Church.
An ‘Average’ Weekday
The most important aspect of our lives is our prayer in community. An outline of our normal day follows. Being a new and small community, our timetable inevitably varies occasionally to accommodate pastoral emergencies, study time, retreats and apostolic engagements away from home.
The one thing that never changes is our commitment to, and desire for, prayer in community. At the heart of each day wherever we are and whatever we do, is Mass, Holy Hour, the Divine Office and Rosary. The times and places may change, the necessity never does.

I would like to send you a donation in the form of a cheque. Could you please let me know who the cheque should be made payable to. Thank you.
Just to say that Sunday was a wonderful evening. The play was excellent and Gillian especially enjoyed the singing. I took my mum’s new Rosary Beads over last night, (duly blessed by Father Deeley as Father Byrne was too busy gabbing). She was delighted with them although by the time we left she might not even remember about them. However, the point is they made her happy last night.
Thanks again and we will both see you next Sunday. Maria and Gillz.
God bless you sisters. please let me have your postal address ?
May Our Lord guide you and bless you all in your wonderful apsotolate.

Can you pray a few special intentions. For a father who has not seen his son in about 12 years. That we move to a more wholesome place to rear our children and fro conversion of masons.
Thank you for your inspiring presentation/lecture last night. *The Jack McArdle Lecture”. I got the impression that you are not particularily impressed at your ability to inspire people. Rather more interested in “give me your number so I can give you a job to do”. On that note you have left me with that question for myself. When I get back home what am I going to do. How are people going to know I am pro-life. I never thought about that before. So you see Sr Roseann I didn’t give you my number but you still gave me a job to do. Thank you and Thank God for you both.
Just seen a programme about you on EWTN with Fr Owen Gorman and was inspired to pray for you and for women who are tempted to abortion. May God bless your work and reward you. I hope you get vocations!
Thank you and God bless you!

Is this the organization that Mary Wagner, the pro-life activist who frequently does time in jail for going to abortion clinics, belongs? I just read an article that mentioned she belonged to Gospel of Life, who based their life on prayer first.
Thanks for our question. No, this is not the organisation that Mary Wagner belongs to.
