Numbers: Today, over 450 SNJM Sisters and about 400 Associates — women and men who share our mission, but do not make vows — are part of the U.S.-Ontario Province, formed in 2006 by re-configuring five SNJM Provinces of the Congregation who have been in close relationship with each other for years: California, New York, Ontario, Oregon, and Washington. Worldwide, Sisters of the Holy Names can be found on three continents: North America, South America, and Africa.
Our ministries: Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary have founded schools, established universities, provided spiritual guidance and education in the faith, and promoted peace and justice. Always, Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary have collaborated with people who share our Gospel values and our passion for social justice. Such ministries remain at the core of our work: they express our values in action.
