Sister Marichui, US Vocation Director, reports on a recent Life Awareness, Vocation Retreat with the Vocation Office committee from the Archdioceses of San Antonio:
To Celebrate the CCVI 150 Years of service, Incarnate Word High School (IWHS) held a Mass and reception in honor of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word. Sisters, alumnae, staff, and students were in attendance. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed mingling at the reception!
“I don’t get anything out of going to Mass.” Someone once told me, “You get out of going to Mass what you put into it.” This makes more sense with a more informed theology of Eucharist. When we understand Eucharist, and our participation, as the public prayer of the Church, we tend to “get” more out of going to Mass.
On May 25, in the Chapel of the Incarnate Word, our Jubilarians of the United States of America celebrated their anniversary of 25, 50, 60 and 75 years of consecration with an emotional mass. Congratulations and thanks for your work, dear Sisters!
The Mass for the day of the Incarnate Word was celebrated in the garden of the CIW University in Mexico City, and this photo surprised us when we saw the ray of light that shone directly on the image of the Incarnate Word.
