This week Georgetown Visitation celebrated our Visitation Sisters as part of National Catholic Sisters Week. Created to honor women religious during Women's History Month, National Catholic Sisters Week shines a spotlight of recognition and gratitude on all women religious and raises awareness of their profound influence on young women. We give thanks to God for the vocations of the Sisters of the Visitation and their humble, gentle, joy-filled witness to Live Jesus!
God Bless the Sisters of the Visitation

Prayer for Vocations
Gracious God, look with love on your Visitation family.
Gift our community with new members who will be open and responsive
to the vital call to Live Jesus in our world today
in the spirit of St. Francis de Sales and St. Jane de Chantal.
Mary you were the first to carry Jesus to others
when you brought joy to Elizabeth in the mystery of the Visitation.
Help us to carry Jesus to others.
This we ask in Jesus' name. Amen.
