Sister Sylvia

As Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities, we live as women of prayer and action. In community, we reverence each other as sisters because we recognize that we have a common brother in Christ. In ministry, we use our talents and passions to serve God’s people. In prayer, we find support and strength.

We can help you explore your future path. You can visit the sisters in their homes, attend a discernment retreat, connect with us on FaceBook, or consider our House of Discernment.

House of Discernment

Located in Millvale, Pennsylvania (outside of Pittsburgh), the House of Discernment is an opportunity for women ages 20-50 to spend six months to a year considering their future. Living, working and praying with likeminded women will give you a sense of community life while you determine the kind of life God is calling you to. Will your ultimate path lead to our door?
