Visitation Second Federation

The website for the Visitation’s Second Federation has been taken down. The St. Louis Visitandines – who may have been the webmasters – moved in with the Sisters of Mercy.

There are only four Second Federation monasteries (that we know of) that are still operational:

Georgetown, DC:

Their “Gallery Ministry” is similar to the First Federation’s apostolate of permitting in-cloister retreats.

Brooklyn, NY:

Minneapolis, MN:


Mendota Heights, MN:
