Our Apostolate in Colombia

05-21-2017The Sisters Corner

Our Apostolate in Colombia…In 2002 we opened our first foundation outside Peru: Colombia. Today, we are in the town of Marinilla, Antioquia. We have several missions, we feel, where the Lord wants us to serve. We would like to share some of them with you.

In the social pastoral area, we have the opportunity to help the elderly and people that are homeless. We do this ministry in coordination with “Accion Cartitativa” (Project of the Diocese).

In the pastoral health area, we visit those who lacking in this necessity of life. We also do pastoral work at the universities, accompanying the students and workers of “Universidad Catolica de Oriente”, providing formation in the Catholic faith and developing projects for the students to volunteer their services.

Through our service, we seek to be open to all the needs of the church. Nowadays, we assist in ministries in different parishes, such as: preparation for the sacraments, retreats and mission trips. We also have a project “Alegria y Esperanza” where we catechize people in human promotion in a very poor town in Marinilla.

Our Apostolate in South America Ecuador

05-14-2017The Sisters Corner

As we are called by the Lord to serve the most needy people, we have a Pastoral and Solidarity Center named “Nuestra Señora de la Reconciliación” (Our Lady of Reconciliation) located in Tarifa (a very poor town of Guayaquil). With a group of volunteers we assist families that live there and give them a pastoral care through catechesis, preparing them for the sacraments, with courses of faith formation. We also seek to contribute to the social development of the people through human promotion with Labor Training Workshops.

Also, in Guayaquil, we have a center for young and adult women with mental disabilities called “Jacinta y Francisco”. We seek to educate and form them (along with their families) through the Catholic faith by providing them with everything necessary to maximize their skills and abilities so that in order to be socially and professionally integrated. This apostolate is with the help of a professional staff that is dedicated to the participants.

Our Missions in Other Countries

05-07-2017The Sisters Corner

Our apostolate in Peru is called “Encuentra a Cristo”. In the city of Lima, one of the apostolic projects that we have is called “Encuentra a Cristo” (“Find Christ”) in which every week we go to visit, with a group of volunteers, those who are the forgotten, facing the hard life of living in the streets of the city.

For each one of us, as Servants of the Plan of God, it’s a pleasure to serve Jesus through them, asking us for help. We believe that God never forgets any of His children. He will do everything to have them return back to Him. We too want them to have the experience of God’s love. A love that always find us, even if we have committed mistakes. With the grace of God, we see many of them choosing the option of a better life and most importantly, a life with Jesus.

What do we do in our Missions in South America?

As you know we are a community that was born in Lima (Peru) and we have been serving the Mission of the Lord in two cities, besides Lima: Ayacucho and Ayaviri (both in the highlands of Peru) and additionally in other countries of South America: Ecuador, Colombia and Chile.

Today we would like to share with you two of our projects in Lima (Peru).

We have a school for children with physical disabilities: “La Alegria en el Senor” (“The Joy in the Lord”), where we teach and pair them with teachers and volunteers, giving them all the help that we can with a professional staff that assists the children within the school. We also offer foster care for children from ages 3 to 5 years old, where we are in charge of the administration
and we accompany them and teach them the faith in the Lord.

Holy Shroud continued, A Great Sign of Mercy and Hope that God wants to give us

04-23-2017The Sisters Corner

One of the most beautiful gifts that the Lord has left us is His Face and His Body imprinted on the Holy Shroud. This Sacred Icon of His Love to the end for humanity shows the marks that Jesus had on His entire His Body due to the suffering and His crucifixion.

Today is Divine Mercy Sunday and as we are living together the Passion and the Resurrection of the Lord, we consider the Holy Shroud as a very strong sign for not forgetting how much He loves us.

Continuing with the last meditation of this beautiful sign, we want to share with you some other thoughts that we, as Servants of the Plan of God, have about it.

The Marks Of An Extreme Love-The Holy Shroud

04-16-2017The Sisters Corner

One of the most beautiful gifts that the Lord has left us is His Face and His Body imprinted on the Holy Shroud. This Sacred Icon of His Love to the end for humanity shows the marks that Jesus had on His entire His Body due to the suffering and His crucifixion.

For us as Servants of the Plan of God, this is a special devotion that shows us the marks of the Love that Jesus has for each one of us. And when we see them it shakes our hearts and makes us want to love in the same way as Jesus.

As these marks were impressed in the moment of the Resurrection of Jesus, they are also a sign of hope! Jesus is alive and is always in our lives in many different ways. We can see Him in our neighbor, especially those who suffer, inviting us to give hope to others by His Love.

Have a beautiful and blessed Easter!!

Our Devotions- Master of Mercy

04-09-2017The Sisters Corner

“I live by faith in the Son of God,who loved me and gave himself for me”(Gal 2:20)

One of our special devotions is the Master of Mercy. He is Jesus in the image of a small child and that has different signs: His Face expresses happiness and tenderness, in His right hand He is holding His own Sacred Heart that was taken from His chest.

Amid these signs we see that even though He suffered,He was happy to offer His own life to us! And He would be happy to do it again if necessary. Because He truly loves us. In the image of a child we see that His love is free. A child gives their love to others in a simple, innocent and honest way.

For us, as Servants of the Plan of God, we discover that we hunger to receive His Love, to believe more and more in this love. In that way, we are able to love Him and to love the people that Jesus puts in our path with His own Love.

Thank You Lord for Giving Us Such a Beautiful Gift!

The main role of Mary in our consecrated life:For Christ to Mary and through Mary more fully to the Lord Jesus!

The Person who best knows Jesus and follows His steps perfectly, with a lot of love is His Mother: Our Lady/Our Mother.

For us, as Servants of the Plan of God, we discover in Mary a Mother that Jesus given to us as a model of Servant, how to love and follow Him and to learn how to love others with the same Love of Jesus.

Mary’s joy is to bring joy to the Heart of God by giving Him more daughters and sons. She works silently but effectively in our hearts guiding us to be closer to Jesus. She intercedes for our intentions and needs. We learn from her how to serve others and we find ourselves so grateful for having her as THE model as a Servant of The Plan of God.

Thank You Lord for giving us such a beautiful Gift!
