Pro Ecclesia Sancta Sisters Move Into Poor Clares Monestary

The News is out.  The beautiful Sisters of Pro Ecclesia Sancta will be moving into our precious monastery as we leave for Assisi Heights.  We have been in dialog with them for many months.  Only God could give us such fine young women to carry on the life of prayer here, and from here to offer apostolic service in our Archdiocese.   The female branch of Pro Ecclesia Sancta was founded in Peru only 25 years ago.  Their numbers have grown steadily and they have missions as far away as Spain. More info
