LSP-SanFran (19 of 35)We have inherited a rich spirituality from our foundress, Saint Jeanne Jugan:
• Christ centeredness
• Gospel simplicity according to the spirit of the Beatitudes
• Trust in God’s Providence to provide for all of our needs,
together with a strong devotion to Saint Joseph, patron and protector   of our Congregation
• Marian spirituality: “To come to the heart of Mary is to come to Jesus.”
• A strong family spirit, together with a sense of solidarity and universality

Spirituality Body3Our daily lives are marked by a regular rhythm of prayer, which includes:

• Daily Mass with our Sisters and the elderly
• Liturgy of the Hours sung in community (morning, evening and night prayer)
• Daily mental prayer, made together each morning
• A half-hour visit to the Blessed Sacrament each day
• Daily recitation of the rosary
• Lectio divina and spiritual reading;
• Sacrament of Reconciliation on a regular basis

Habits of silence help us cultivate intimacy with God. Our meals are usually taken in silence.
We also enjoy several moments of retreat throughout the year. These help us to refresh ourselves at the fountain of God’s love.
