A look at the history of our community, with its motherhouse in Alhambra, California, reveals how its life-giving presence has come about.
This violent persecution provided the backdrop to the birth and humble beginnings of our community.
Mother Luisita taught her daughters to cling to God in mind and heart through contemplative prayer. Through loving apostolic service, they would associate themselves with the work of Redemption and spreading the Kingdom of God.
Today, we continue our loving service in our healthcare facilities, retreat houses and schools, which to this day, remain oases of life and hope.
in schools by “Educating for Life with the Mind and Heart of Christ”;
in senior healthcare by being “At the Service of the Family for Life”;
and in retreat work by “Promoting a Deeper Spiritual Life” among God’s people.
On July 1, 2000, Pope John Paul II promulgated that Mother Maria Luisa Josefa be called “Venerable”. This means it has been proven that Mother Luisita practiced her virtues to a heroic degree. She is now a candidate for beatification, which requires one miracle through her intercession.
