You shall love the Lord,your God with all your heart and your neighbor as yourself (Lk 10,17)
In response to the call of Archbishop John J. Myers, we came to the Archdiocese of Newark (northern New Jersey) in 2007 to be witnesses of our religious life, through contemplative prayer life and fraternal charity.
Our community here in East Orange is very international: seven sisters from 5 different countries. It is always beautiful to rediscover our unity in Jesus Christ.
Our apostolates is twofold :
On one hand we are involved in our Parish life, working together with Fr. Josemanuel Abalon, Pastor of St.Joseph Parish. We strive to be attentive to the needs of our inner city neighborhood through visits, CCD,Bible Studies, and religion classes at the Parish school.
On the other hand, two of us are more involved in the Campus Ministry of Seton Hall University. Seton Hall is a private Roman Catholic university.
We entrust each one of us and our missions to your prayers. May God helps us to be true witnesses of his love in our poor area.
