Who are the Passionist Nuns of Saint Louis
Nuns of the Passion of Jesus Christ, cloistered contemplative nuns, founded by St. Paul of the Cross, May 3, 1771 in Corneto, Italy. With the Church, we are called to be a Sign of the Love of Jesus Christ for the Father and for mankind by a life of Prayer, Solitude, Penance and Community. In full habit and professing our 5-fold Vows - Devotion to and grateful remembrance of the Passion, Chastity, Poverty, Obedience and Enclosure, we offer unceasing prayer and joyful penance in love and fidelity to the Church and the Holy Father -- certain of contributing to the fullness of the Church's presence to mankind. 
 
The foundation of Passionist Nuns in the Archdiocese of St. Louis dates from February 1948. In addition to our contemplative dedication, we also prepare altar breads for numerous parishes.
