All of you are the children of God, through faith, in Christ Jesus, since every one of you that has been baptized has been clothed in Christ. There can be neither Jew nor Greek, there can be neither slave nor free, there can be neither male nor female -- for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Galatians 3:26-28

NEW! Migrant Children – LCWR’s Urgent Call to Action (Call both your Senators and your Representative, please see below.)

Sister Ann Scholz invites us to protect migrant children and to urge Congress NOT to weaken the 2008 Trafficking Victims Protection Act which requires our government to give legal protections to youth who arrive from certain Central American countries. Given our Sisters’ 2007 Corporate Stance against human trafficking, it is appropriate to contact legislators and share personal sentiments about our government’s response to the continuing immigration crisis because it intersects with human trafficking and victims’ protection. Thank you for witnessing to the Joy of the Gospel in this way. Peace and all good!

Thank you for visiting our website.

We invite you to join us to share in the joy, peace, friendship, healing and love that God's Word, communion and Spirit provide.  We see ourselves as a spiritual refugee camp for the many disenfranchised, disillusioned and dishonored faithful Catholics who want to live their faith true to the vision of the Vatican II Council.   

(Soon we will have a Photo Page available so everyone will be to see some of the amazing people involved in this community! Stay tuned.)
