CHRISTUS: Tea Time with CCVI Sisters

They passed out Fiesta medals to the Sisters and others around the hospital.

Thank you for being here with Sr. Emma, Sr. Cristina, Sr. Luz del Carmen and Sr. María Elena – who will have the difficult honor of being the last sisters of our Congregation in the Institute.
