You did not choose me,

but I chose you and appointed you

so that you might go and bear fruit,

fruit that will last

and so that whatever you ask in my name

the Father will give you. (John 15:16)

Our little fraternity started our journey together in the beginning of September in Notre-Dame de Guadaloupe convent, formerly the Provincial House.  Our mission is to reach out to those who feel a calling to religious life. The sisters are also sent to walk with those fleeing war, university students looking for accompaniment, and children growing in their faith in need of education. We also visit and distribute communion to the homebound.  Some sisters work for the protection of our Common Home (Mother Earth) and with newcomers who are learning English.  We trust in the Spirit to walk along with us as we grow together in this call to “be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.  Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.” (Romans 12:10-13)
