Missioned to Cuba

On December 27th four of our Sisters left for the Motherhouse in Germany to prepare for a new mission.  A few weeks later on January 10, 2011 they were going to Cuba.  Sister Eva-Maria, Sister M. Wiltraud, Sister M. Philippa and Sister M. Seraphica have responded to God's call to bring His Merciful Love to the priests, seminarians and people of Cuba as they serve at the new seminary in Havana.  Please keep them in your prayers and check out more photos

Dear Sisters!

Congratulations in spreading Love to Cuba!
How many of the American sisters are left who were missioned to the USA?
What must it be like?!

Will more Sisters go there from all over the world now to aid in this mission?

Where do the Sisters fly out of St Louis, Mo or FL? Or round about for the cheapest tickets? How long is the flight? Do you land in Havana?

Do you have your convent on the Seminary property or next door?

Will they wear the American habit, or Brazilian or other?

How different is their order of the day from the one here in the US?

Do you have room to grow for more sisters or will you have a novitiate there as well?

Who is the Sister Superior now that Mother M Regina Pacis will be coming back to the US?

How soon before Mother M Margaretha travels for a visit?

How many other Religious sister communities are there...several photos show other religious women?

This is tremendous news and exciting to read about!

Thanks for sharing your merciful love with all of us!

Dear Sisters,
God's blessings on this mission.

Who invites you to be in a mission?

Do you decide what apostolates you want to perform based on whom you send?

How is a mission decided upon by the Community?

Who decides who goes to the missions?

Is there an age limit Community wise or age wise?

Is there any special preparations a sister makes to go on a mission, say language, educational degrees, cooking classes?

Was the US a mission prior to becoming a province? What makes the change occur?

Thanks for letting us see a bit of your lives!

If you would like to send a word of welcome and encouragement to these new postulants, we will pass the greetings along to them. Just leave them as a "comment"!

Looking Back with Gratitude

“Christ is calling you; the Church needs you; the Pope believes in you and he expects great things of you!” My life would never be the same as the words of John Paul II coursed through my mind and beat with fervor in my heart. Me? Could he possibly mean me? Like many others, I felt Pope John Paul II was speaking directly to me as I sat behind him in the nose-bleed section of the stadium in Saint Louis. Throughout my high school years after this encounter, the idea of having a possible vocation to the religious life shocked and bewildered me, but at the same time brought me such peace. As each year came and went, my relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church grew with greater depth, understanding, and love. Through daily mass, Eucharistic Adoration, the Rosary, Scripture and God’s divine intervention through his priests and religious, I soon realized that, yes, the Pope did mean me. Christ was calling me and how could I say no? After one year of college, I soon came to the realizatio
