Sister Feliciana Mejia, Director of Pre-Novitiate, is Pleased to Introduce and Welcome our Pre-Novice, Maria Del Carmen Ramirez
Carmen entered the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word on November 8, 2020, and joined the Emmaus Community in San Antonio, Texas. In her own words, she tells her story:
An important finding: the presence of Sister Leonor González, CCVI, in Diego Rivera’s frescos at the National Cardiology Institute (1946-1951).
Sister Pauline Fierro, CCVI is being remembered for Día de Muertos 2020 by the City of San Antonio World Heritage Office as a notable person in the history of the San Francisco de Espada Mission. She was one of a group of three Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word to start the ‘Espada School’ for the local archdiocese in 1915 at the mission. The other two sisters were Sister Emmanuel Phelan (born in Ireland) and Sister Simplicia Oeffelke (born in Germany).
For your work, your mission, your dedication, we always remember you beloved Sisters.
We are delighted to welcome Carmen Ramirez to the Emmaus Community!
On Thursday evening, August 27, Elvira Jimenez and Marylou Rodriguez were received into the novitiate. Yesterday, September 2 the St. Louis Intercommunity Novitiate program began for the 2020-2021 year. We are proud of our new novices and we are grateful for the multicultural, inter generational community that we are as we strive to live the spirit and charism of our CCVI Congregation. We know we can count on your prayers for each of us and for us as a community.
