Do you feel called to religious life?

The Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon are here to help women who are discerning a call to religious life. 

We encourage you to review our vocation information, pray over your calling, and contact us with questions and requests for prayer.

Connect with our Vocations Director, Sister Charlene Herinckx at vocations@ssmo.org, to learn more about discernment and to request prayer from the Sisters about your calling.


With God, all is possible.
