We are happy to share that six young women participated in the CCVI Vocational Week 2017 at Casa San Ángel, at the retreat held earlier this year from July 16 to July 24. We express our gratitude to the Incarnate Word for the presence of these young women who are trying to give an answer to the calling from the Incarnate Word.
On Saturday, January 21, a simple ceremony was held at Emmaus Community to welcome our two new pre-novices, Marileth Cabrera and Christi Sanchez.
This New Year 2017 the City of San Antonio, TX, received a rainfall of blessings, as it was the city that hosted a five-day event organized by Focus; “SEEK 2017”. The event was on January 3-7, in the Henry B González Convention Center, where 12 500 Catholic young people from several Universities in the United States, some from Ireland, Mexico and Costa Rica, got together to strengthen their faith, to share a time for prayer, reflection and singing, in a thoroughly festive environment.

Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word were celebrating a few weeks ago the religious profession of Sor Adriana Calzada, who has committed herself to continue the work of Jesus to serve the community. These are the words that were pronounced in this celebration.
A personal recount from Sor Marichui Bringas about her work in the vocations ministry for our Congregation:
The Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word are called to make God’s love a real and tangible presence in the world. I often reflect on how ‘presence’ can be an integral part of our busy, hurried lives. Are we truly present even to our friends and family? This has been a soul searching issue for me, yet presence is a simple everyday thing. Here is how I found out.
Our mission centers on making concrete the healing love of Jesus, the Incarnate Word; our ministries enable us to carry out this mission. The Gospels remind us that Jesus healed the sick; our hospitals, long-term care facilities, clinics and outpatient centers, and hospice ministries exist to deliver compassionate, high quality health care that embodies our values and respects the dignity and worth of each person.
From our beginning, our congregation has been committed to bringing the healing love of Jesus, the Incarnate Word, to those in need no matter where that need may be.
From the first day of entrance into our community to final, perpetual profession requires a minimum of six years.
