Sisters of the Good Samaritan of the Order of St Benedict

We the Sisters of the Good Samaritan, are religious women whose desire is to seek God. Our spirituality, nourished by the ancient Rule of Benedict and the Good Samaritan parable, is expressed in our commitment to community life, prayer, justice, hospitality and compassionate service. We take seriously Jesus’ Gospel command to go and be neighbour.
