Incarnate Word vespers service for the Feast of the Incarnation of the Lord – live in Chapel of the Incarnate Word & transmitted by Zoom internationally/bilingually to include all of the members of the Incarnate Word family.
Good evening. We are so blessed to be able to come together in person, with the Sisters and with our sister sponsored ministries, in celebration of the Feast of the Annunciation and Incarnate Word Day. We have not been able to celebrate Mass in this way for more than a year — and this fellowship has been sorely missed and greatly needed.
Our associates were active and present during the congregational celebration journey. The Sisters thank their associates for their contributions and their much-needed enthusiasm in these difficult times, thank you dear associates for being part of the Family of the Incarnate Word.
With an enormous effort, the Sisters of all ages and all nationalities managed to meet, thanks to technology, to share Vespers, a spiritual Retreat, and Mass for the celebration of the Feast of the Incarnation. In the photos, we can see the Sisters during their Retreat.

Reflection by S. Teresa Maya
In the picture, IWA students are shown loading a van from EnergyCare with blankets from IWA’s annual blanket drive. The IWA community collected over 800 blankets for this year’s drive.
On February 17-20, on the occasion of the beginning of Lent, we accompanied the community in Tepozal, San Antonio and Emiliano Zapata. We share faith and life with people, we listen to their stories, the work they do to sell their avocados, coffee, lemon… their attempt to take care of the lands inherited from their grandparents, as well as their concern for their relatives who have had to migrate in search of a better quality of life.
