United States Vocation and Incorporation Program

For the Love of Mercy is our normative document for the new membership process in the Institute. Its purpose is to say clearly what we believe are the best practices regarding the movement of women through the process of discernment for membership. We continue to call one another to consider it as our common word, a word that shapes, challenges and reflects our best efforts for our future community.
