    Our Foundress, Mother Marie Rose Durocher, was a contemplative in action. The fire of Mother Marie Rose that we carry gives life to our SNJM reality.

    We work in multiple settings for the full development of the human person. These settings include preschools, parishes, tutoring centers or graduate programs; studios, prisons, immigrant centers or clinics; leading processes that guide communities to choose a Gospel path, or directing programs that promote systemic change.

    The legacy of faith, vision and courage of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary is enkindled in our ministries. Through your prayers or financial support, the Sisters continue the work that was begun more than 150 years ago by Blessed Marie Rose Durocher: full development of the human person through education, social justice, contemplation, and the arts.

Painting Pride at Marie Rose House in Wapato

While Marina Rose Parisi, SNJM was celebrating her 60th Jubilee with a Mass in Toppenish, volunteers from Western Washington, Wapato and Yakima converged at Marie Rose House to do a graffiti transformation project on a house across the street. The centerpiece, Mother Mary and the wolf, represents two symbols deep in the psyche of Wapatoans. (The town is about 70% Latino, mainly of Mexican descent, and the high school mascot is the wolf.)
