Video: Daughters of Saint Paul

First slide

This week's Year of Consecrated life video features The Daughters of Saint Paul in Alexandria, Virginia. The sisters were founded in 1915 by Blessed James Alberione, an Italian priest. He gave them the mission to be Saint Paul in the world of today. They do that by using all kinds of media to spread the Gospel. The Daughters of Saint Paul are now in over 52 countries globally. Today six sisters live in Alexandria, Virginia where they operate a Pauline Books and Media center on King Street. Visitors to their store are welcome to take a few prayerful moments with Jesus in their chapel located above the store. When they are not helping customers in their store, the sisters travel around the diocese and surrounding dioceses giving talks, attending conferences and putting on book fairs at local schools.
