The Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Church, are a new Association of the Faithful. The Sisters returned to the Catholic Church from the traditionalist community at Mount St. Michael and will spend the next year in discernment at Immaculate Heart Retreat Center, Spokane. (IR photo)

There are several paths within the journey that has brought 15 women Religious into communion with the Catholic Church.

Personal care, compassion, and interaction. Prayer, most certainly. Even technology played a part.

But one of the key turning points in the journey was the death of Pope John Paul II.


Simply Awesome!!!:smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

PRAISE GOD!!!:thumbsup:

I was reading about this some time ago.

Apparently when Pope Benedict was elected some of the Sisters reconsidered their sedevacantist position. Apparently the new Holy Father’s views didnt quite fit with their previous idea of a heretical anti-Pope.
