Our Missions in Other Countries

04-30-2017The Sisters Corner

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!

Meet Sr. Stephanie

03-26-2017The Sisters CornerSr. Stephanie

I am Sr. Stephanie, I'm from Perú and I am very happy to now be here in Tempe, to serve His Plan and His Mission here and to get to know you.

I'm very grateful that God has chosen me to be His Servant. It has been 9 years since I answered the lovely Call of God.

I had never thought of being a nun, but in my heart I yearned to give my life to people in need. I discovered when I attended a social project for helping poor children that my heart was made to love God through not just one or two people. He was calling me to love Him through all His sons and daughters. The Voice of the Lord hasn’t disappeared from my heart even as the years pass. His Voice continues to call me everyday in many ways: in the people that I encounter, in my sisters of community, and in many situations of a common day. That makes me very happy and it makes me want to love Him more and to follow His steps wherever He takes me. He has given me more than I could have ever imagined!

Meet Sr. Maria Alejandra

03-12-2017The Sisters CornerSr. Maria Alejandra

Being a Servant of the Plan of God… I’m so thankful for God because when He looked at me, He chose me to be a Servant of the Plan of God. I had always wanted to give my life for the needy, especially for those I saw on the street and for the ones who were sick. Growing up I discovered that there were also people who suffer in a spiritual way. I realized that Jesus was inviting me to carry not only my cross, but also the cross of others. Then I met the sisters. It was beautiful for me to see that they have my same desires. Now I can say that I’m extremely happy being with Jesus and a part of His mission in the Servants of the Plan of God.

Meet Sr. Maria Jose

03-05-2017The Sisters CornerSr. Maria Jose

It is an immense display of God´s mercy for me, that God has called me to be a Servant of the Plan of God. Since I was little I always had a great desire to be very close to Jesus. To be a missionary, able to transmit to all people His love. In a world that seeks to eliminate the external signs; He gave me this vocation and the opportunity to wear a habit. Showing with my presence that God exists, that He is alive and that He is the answer to our deepest desires of happiness. He also has given me sisters with the same desires of our hearts. As we support each other to reach our common goal of attaining eternal life in heaven with Him and thus helping many people to be saved.

Meet Sr. Maria Christina

02-26-2017The Sisters CornerSr. Maria Cristina

I am Sr. Maria Cristina. I’m 22 years old and I entered the community when I was 19 years old. All my life God has been taking care of me and guiding me so that I could answer His call. Sometimes when I look back at my story I am surprised to see the cry of the love of God that said to me: “Follow me, I have chosen you”. If I had to summarize my testimony I would do it in one phrase: “all of myself and forever”.

“All of myself”: because my entire life is for God and to serve Him in the needy, in the ones who suffer and in those who are in need of consolation, counsel and love.

“Forever”: because as I started to discern my vocation, I fell in love with the fact that I understood my yes as a yes to anything He wanted to ask of me. Any mission He wanted to give me in any country He wanted me to be serve in. In a full apostolic life open to His Plan with other sisters who share the same joy as mine and who also will proclaim the wonders of God to everyone.

I’m extremely happy to be a Servant of the Plan of God. Every time I talk about it, I feel like I have won the lottery!

Being a Servant of the Plan of God

02-19-2017The Sisters Corner

A young women’s discernment process starts as she begins to perceive “the call” from God as well as getting to know our order in a more personal manner.

The process proceeds when she expresses verbally the yearning; to know more about our vocation and mission. During this time, we invite and assist her with going into a deeper spiritual prayer life, self- knowledge, spending more time getting to know the community and our mission. This is our way of support, thus giving her the necessary tools that she will need for the discernment.

After a period of personal time and witnessing certain signs that are going towards the direction of the consecrated life, the next step is getting to know the community, living with us for a period of time, which helps to confirm her original sense of “the call” . This is called the “Communitarian Experience.”

We receive three years of formation. Part of the formation includes an apostolic experience, which happens towards the end of formation. The sisters are assigned to one of our apostolic communities to live out our mission of living among the people before returning to the formation house.

We then enter the permanent formation. Continuing our college courses and our studies in pastoral and theology formation. During this very important period, we continue our personal growth as part of the community. We engage through different ministerial opportunities as we move forward toward our temporal profession until our perpetual profession.

Our Mission...

Serving our brothers and sisters who are ill, in hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, hospices, and similar services.

FORMATION IN THE FAITH
Evangelizing through the care, management and the proclamation of the Word, in retreat houses and formation centers teaching the faith of the Church and leading spiritual exercises.

EDUCATION
As Christians educating and offering formation to the needy and the poor, announcing the Good News of the Lord Jesus, and communicating with fidelity the faith of the Church.

Living in loving solidarity with the needy. Working and assisting towards the promotion of the human condition, within the spirit of the Gospel and utilizing the social teaching of the Church. Keeping in mind that out of service to our brother the evangelizing dynamism is born and with the perspective that both proclaiming the Gospel and service are intimately linked.

Servants Around the World

02-05-2017The Sisters Corner

We have received many blessings over the years and with the grace of God many doors have opened in different countries around the world.

Our headquarters are in Lima-Peru and for this reason we have several Apostolic Communities serving in the various missions we have. We are also in two provinces in Peru: Ayacucho and Ayaviri.

Our presence in Latin America is extended to other countries as Colombia, Chile and Ecuador, evangelizing people of all ages, with different needs in their lives. Serving the Church directly in Rome has also been a blessing. We have sisters serving the needs of the Church there in many different ways.

Going to other continents continues to be a challenge. However, we believe that God wants us in the Philippines and Angola because of their status’ as mission territories, with many needs. Through the years of serving the Church in Angola and the Philippines, we have experienced an existing deep hunger for God. It is believed that this hunger is partly satisfied as they continue to encounter the testimonies of people trying to fulfill that hunger and need.

And now with God we face our new challenge in coming to United States. We are open to His grace during this beautiful time. We are so grateful to God with our first community in Arizona!
