Mexican Provincial Visits the U.S.A.

Thursday, February 12, 2009

The U.S. Province said bienvenida and welcome to Sr. Eugenia Guadalupe, RA, Provincial of Mexico. Sr. Eugenia visited our Province from January 27 -- February 18, 2009.

Briefly visiting the three communities of Worcester, Lansdale and West Philadelphia in the Northeast, she spent the longest part of her time in Chaparral, New Mexico. There she got to know about the life and work of our Sisters, was reunited with Sr. Veronica, a Junior Sister from Mexico who has been with the community since February 2008, and got a first-hand experience of the life of immigrants on this side of the Mexican-U.S. border.

We were all so grateful for her time with us, and see in it another example of the strong bonds of friendship and collaboration between our two Provinces. It was with great gratitude and affection that we said adios and come again as she left us.
