The Long Island Catholic has an article on Sister Mary Gabriel from the Sisters of Life. Sister was one of the organizers of the young adult retreat I attended.

"Along with vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, Sisters of Life take a vow to protect all human life, especially mothers, children and the unborn. Among other ministries, they counsel women who have had abortions and women who are at risk for an abortion. They also share one of their residences, Sacred Heart of Jesus in New York City, with mothers who choose to keep their babies. They direct the Family Life/Respect Life Office for the Archdiocese of New York and evangelize locally and nationally. They have four residences, two in the Bronx, one in New York City and the fourth in Yonkers. The congregation will host a “Come and See” at Our Lady of New York in the Bronx on November 28-30. For more information call vocation director Sister of Life Veronica Mary at 718-863-2264."
