About Us

We, the Sisters of the Living Word, are a community of 65 women religious founded in 1975 and headquartered in Arlington Heights, Illinois. Our Mission is to reflect and affirm the Word, Jesus, who frees the oppressed and gives new life.

We minister throughout the Midwest and South. Our works include youth and adult education, parish, campus and diocesan ministry, health care, retreat and spiritual direction, counseling, healing ministries, environmental advocacy and outreach to new immigrants as well as to victims of violence, hunger, unemployment and homelessness.
