The Sisters have greatly enjoyed their second year in the great city of Houston! This mission was established under the invitation of Bishop Steven Lopes of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, and the Sisters work in a variety of apostolates in the greater Houston area. Below are just a few of our highlights:

  • Sr. Maria Guadalupe and Sr. John Michael finished their second year of teaching at St. John XXIII College Prep. They were also involved in many retreats at the school including the annual Kairos Retreat.
  • Sr. Albert Marie taught theology classes at University of St. Thomas as well as a class at St. Mary’s Seminary.
  • Sr. Thomas Aquinas, Director of Education for the Cathedral of Our Lady of Walsingham, and Sr. Amata Veritas, who works in the chancery of the Ordinariate, organized the first Women’t Discernment Retreat for the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter. They also organized the Cathedral Women’s Lenten Retreat that focused on the Scripture story of raising of Lazarus.

We look forward to another grace-filled year in Houston, Texas!
