Peace and Greetings to You in Our Lord Jesus Christ!
I am Sr. Kathleen Marie and I just joined this forum and left a message for new members. However, I want to start a discussion in regards to Vocations to the Religious Life for women who are older. I am the Co-Foundress of a new “Project” (the Church’s term) of a new community of women who hope to one day be cannonical approved as consecrated Religious Sisters in the Archdiocese of Chicago. We are; The Sisters of The Real Presence of Our Lord Jesus Christ. We will accept older women and women that have some special health needs as long as they can care for themselves. We will be monastic/active which means we will pray the entire Divine Office everyday, Eucharistic Adoration and live in community. Our Apostolate will be missionary in that we will go out to evangelize by teaching the truths of our Catholic Faith (at schools, conferences, etc.). We will do this by using the Arts (Sacred Arts) such as Fine Arts, Visual Arts, Performane, Acting, Music, etc. It will be serious and fun! We will wear traditional long black habits and veils. We have been and will continue to work with the Archdiocese of Chicago in all that we do. Call 1-773-984-8725, email: SRPOLJC@catholic.org or mail: P.O. Box 587 Summit, IL 60501.
– We think that their is a great need to Proclaim and Defend the truths of our Catholic faith (our fourth vow). Do you? Let’s talk.
