In keeping with the Monastic tradition, the Bridgettine Sisters' chief obligation is liturgical prayer, the regular daily Divine Office. The sisters take part daily in Holy Mass and there is Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament every day. Central to the Sisters' work is the "Guest House" which is part of the activity of Bridgettine Sisters. The Sisters welcome to their house all who seek stillness and quiet. The Sisters' "Hospitality" is an answer to the needs of many pilgrims. The Bridgettine Order has a special mission in furthering ecumenical work and the Sisters are happy to receive guests from other churches and study visits from schools or other groups. They also arrange meetings and retreats. The Bridgettine Sisters are established in three continents, in 65 houses. In all these countries there is growing interest in ecumenism. Chiefly through prayer but also action, the Sisters share in the missionary work of the Church, in co-operation with the needs of the local Church. The Sisters teach catechism, run nursery schools, care for the sick, and provide homes for students and old people.
Bridgettine Sisters give witness to their solidarity to the Universal Church of God through its communal singing of the “Liturgy of the Hours” adoration together with the choir of angels in Heaven.
The charism of the Sisters of St. Bridget or the Bridgettine Sisters, is in their generous offering to give glory to God and the service to humanity through prayer, adoration, reparation and ecumenical activities.
