NewsNews Updates of the Home of the Mother

On March 13th, the Sisters of the community of Alcala de Guadaira (Seville) held a get-together for the children from several local parishes who are preparing to make their First Communion. We held the event here at the Shrine of “Nuestra Señora del Águila.”

The construction of the home of the Servant Brothers and Priests of the Home of the Mother in Las Presillas, Cantabria, Spain, called “Casa Sagrado Corazón” (Sacred Heart House), is now fairly advanced.

We'll start with the exterior of the house...The central courtyard no longer has the giant cypress tree that once stood in its center and the courtyard area is now a bit larger. We are planting several rose bushes and several other plants around the area, to give a little “life” to the house. We have built the room for the heater in the back part of the house and the garden is ready for planting.

On Friday, March 19th, Solemnity of Saint Joseph, we were graced with a visit from Archbishop Lorenzo Voltolini of Portoviejo (Ecuador), who celebrated Mass here at our parish in Lumezzane. He is originally from this area of Brescia (Italy) and had been here a few days visiting his sister who is very ill.

Responding to an invitation from the Diocesan Youth Ministry Coordinator, we attended the 25th Diocesan Youth Day in La Bañeza, on March 13-14. There was also an accompanying celebration of the 15th Vocations and Missions Song Festival.

This past Saturday, March 13, 2010, the Community of Adults of the Home of the Mother had their monthly get-together in "La Aldehuela," in the southern part of Madrid. The day was spent in an environment of great joy, with moments of reflection and prayer, along with time for some good entertainment.

On the morning of March 5th, 2010, Carmen Parra (age 90) passed away here at the Home for the Elderly overseen by the Servant Sisters in Priego (Cuenca). She spent the last 11 years of her life on earth here.

Sister Blanca has been spending several days in Lumezzane recently, to work on a stained-glass window that will be fitted into the chapel door of the Sisters' house there and an icon for inside the chapel. She came on February 8th and immediately got to work. When she arrived, she wasn't really sure what image she would place in the stained-glass window, but while she was here she found inspiration.

On March 6th, our house in Aldehuela hosted a retreat for catechists, Caritas volunteers, and visitors to the sick from the Parish of Our Lady of the Rosary in Mostoles (Madrid).

It's been three and a half years since the Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother arrived in Playa Prieta, within the parish parameters of Riochico, in the Province of Manabi, to take over the administration of a local school.

Helena and Marta of the group ACIM have been in Playa Prieta since February 26th, as they say, “to help out however we can.”

Last weekend, February 26-28th, 22 girls from Seville, Toledo, and Madrid came to the Sisters’ house in Getafe (Madrid) for a get-together.
