Vocations Welcome to the website of the Little Sisters of the Poor.

Discernment Process

“Then, bringing their boats back to land they left everything and followed him.” (Luke 5,11)

All young women who aspire to be Little Sisters go through the following discernment process.
This discernment process is gradually "having the heart and mind of Christ" and imitating the spirit of St. Jeanne Jugan.

Conditions for Admission
She must have been baptized by the Catholic Church for at least three years.
She must be mentally and physically healthy with an educational background above high school.
Single women aged 18 or older and under 40 years of age.

Initial discernment
Young women who want to share in our life are encouraged to volunteer regularly in the homes run by Little Sisters of the Poor before admission.

Formal discernment
Later, they spend more time with a community of Little Sisters, and a formal live-in experience in one of our homes gives a young woman exposure to our life in its fullness – prayer, community, and mission.
