In May 2022, the Sisters on the Houston Mission marked five years at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Walsingham, the Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter. It has been a year of many blessings, and also a year in which the Sisters have enthusiastically carried forward their work in three different apostolates.

A great highlight of the year was Mother Amata Veritas’ visit in September on the occasion of the Patronal Feast of Our Lady of Walsingham. She was able to visit not only the Sisters, but also the many friends and families whom she knew while she was in Houston, prior to her election as Prioress General.

Sister Albert Marie continues to teach theology at both the undergraduate and graduate levels at the University of St. Thomas in Houston. She received news this year of her upcoming promotion to Associate Professor! Along with her work at UST, Sister also teaches theology at St. Mary’s Seminary. She contributes to various conferences—including an upcoming conference at the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (the Angelicum) in Rome. She also helps form our own Sisters in the Thomistic tradition by holding remote classes with the Sisters in the novitiate.

At St. John XXIII College Preparatory in Katy, Texas, there was a happy return to normal after the pandemic. Among other things, Sister Hyacinth teaches history and current events, and especially enjoyed watching her students “plan” the D-Day invasion and chart it on a huge wall map. Sister Jude Andrew teaches theology, and loved seeing her students come to understand the Church more deeply while learning to recognize Jesus’ presence in their lives.
