Mission of the Congregation  - 2019


Easter Triduum 2019

Holy Week in the Province of São Paulo is marked by the intense participation in the life of the communities which celebrate the Easter Triduum with faith in the commitment to the pain of Christ in its suffering members, always in the hope of participating in the joy of his resurrection.

This year the sisters share their mission in the valley of Jequitinhonha-MG, Afonso Cláudio-ES and Petrolina-PE. Intense days with visits to the sick and the elderly, celebrations, moments of accompaniment and encouragement of the communities to persevere in their mission, despite the difficulties of local conditions.


Christ lives and continues to rise in life and to reveal himself in the struggles of those people of faith who have an open heart to welcome him.


Several of our Sisters (Germaine, Emilia Maria...) have worked and lived with the martyrs who will be beatified this Saturday... We join the Province and the Church of La Rioja with our prayers and affection.

Accompany this event  in  - Vatican News.

On April 27, Father Gabriel Longueville will be beatified... in Argentina. The Ardèche missionary sent to the diocese of La Rioja was assassinated under the military dictatorship in 1976.

About thirty young people from the diocese of Viviers went to spend a month on the other side of the Atlantic to discover this figure of holiness. They were deeply marked by it. This "field pedagogy", other young people experienced it in Ventimiglia, on the border between France and Italy, to help migrants. Today, awareness of these issues is also being raised in schools. Mgr Jean-Louis Balsa urges Catholics to the conversion of the heart towards migrants, these people being "so many opportunities to meet Christ". Focus also on the "pastoral of the Syrophoenician". Following this biblical woman who wanted to collect "the crumbs that fell from the table" of Jesus, lay people on mission want to take very special care of the people who are welcomed into the Church so that they feel well integrated.

El próximo 27 de abril, el Padre Gabriel Longueville will be beatificado in Argentina. El missionero del Departamento de Ardeche was sent to the diocese of La Rioja there asesinado por la dictadura militar in 1976. One of our three young people from the diocese of Viviers fueron passed a mes del otro lado del Atlántico to discover this figure of sanity. This experience los marcó profundamente. This is “pedagogía de pisar la misma tierra”, the breeding ground for young people of the diocese in Ventimiglia, in the border between Francia and Italy, for compartir con migrants. Hoy, la sensitización sobre estos temas se realiza también en las escuelas. Monsignor Jean-Louis Balsa exhorted los católicos a  to convert el corazón frente a la realidad de los migrants, “es la ocasión de encontrarse con Cristo”. Subrayó también la “pastoral de la sirofenicia”, esta mujer bíblica que quiso recoger “las migas que caen de la mesa” of Jesus. Los laicos en misión desean especialmente acompañar y cuidar a las personas que se acercan a la Iglesia para que se sientan completamente integradas”
