Those who have visited a Parish Visitor convent know what a special place it is. More important than being our home, it is Jesus’ home. He is with us, living in our chapel. So, it isn’t surprising that the first place we want to take visitors is to our chapel so that they can spend a little time with Our Lord.
As contemplative-missionaries in the midst of parish life, we strive constantly and in a variety of ways and places to inspire in children of all ages that simple statement of faith, “There He is in the Blessed Sacrament!” Through a vibrant prayer life and apostolate, we are blessed to speak with and without words, as teachers and witnesses to Christ’s true presence in the Eucharist.
THE HOLY MASS
“Our whole day is full of good things for God, but there is one work of the day which stands way above all others. This is the offering to God of His Divine Son.”
“In the Holy Family we can study, for the rest of our lives, Poverty, Chastity and Obedience for our own instruction, and we shall never exhaust the subject.”
Recreation includes games, singing and doing enjoyable things together!
“Community life ought to be far better than even the best home life, for it is the union of a consecrated group.”
MANY YET ONE
Our community reflects the diverse cultures and backgrounds within the Church. Besides our American-born Sisters from many states and many ethnic backgrounds, we have Sisters who were born in Puerto Rico, Nigeria, the Philippines, Korea, and Ireland. How wonderful to think that God chose this Sister from one place, that Sister from another, and me from yet another place and brought us all here together to serve Him and His people in this wonderful vocation so needed all over the world. The richness of all these cultures enhances our community life and our apostolate to souls.
Come, share our joy in loving and serving God and His people! Proclaim to every person: “Come, come my children; I will teach you how great is the Lord.” (Psalm 34:12)
