Sisters Celebrate Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe

On December 12, 2013, the Catholic Church throughout the world celebrated the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of the Americas. The feast celebrates the appearances of Mary to Juan Diego in Mexico in 1531. This is a day of special significance to Mexican Catholics and many other people of Latino hertiage. In Pittsburgh, a special celebration, including a Mass, took place at St. Paul Cathedral. Thanks to Sisters Roberta Grzelak, Ana Lydia Sonera Matos, Wendolyn López Santos, and Karina Conrad for representing our community at the liturgy.

Music Makers

"We exalt your Providence, O God, and we submit to all its decrees!" 

Music can be a wonderful conduit between divine presence and experience. Many believe that it is in the nature of humans to yearn for, to seek out, to communicate at some level with, the Divine, and that we are restless until we find a way to be at one with that presence. Music helps people relate to God in a very personal way. It can make one aware of the presence of God.

Associate Marlene McClain's Journey to La Posada Providencia

La Posada Providencia serves as a temporary home and shelter for men, women, and children who flee their countries because of religious persecution, enslavement, and other life- and limb-threatening terrors. First they are sent to detention centers (jails) operated by U.S. Border Patrol. If they are determined to be authentically fleeing horrors, they are placed on a track to receiving papers and staying in the U.S. This process takes time--a day or more; a week or more.
