Saints & Angels

Saints

People take different roads seeking fulfilment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost. - Dalai Lama

As Sisters, we vow to be of service to our community, to expiate stigmatic quilt and to spread universal joy. We do our best to live into these vows and following our callings. We know, however, this path isn't for everyone and there are other amazing people in our community who we recognize for the outstanding ways they live their lives through their devotion to public service, social activism, and spiritual enlightenment. We do this by granting Sainthood in the Order of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. Sainthood is the highest honour that can be given by the Sisters.

Our Saints have provided us with inspiration and/or assistance essential to our work. In this humble way we thank them for their outstanding work, commitment, or inspiration to us and others in our communities. Click here to see the certificate we give to our Saints.
