Incarnate Word Sisters Christi Sanchez and Marylou Rodriguez and four other Sisters travelled to Laredo on Thursday to participate in an inter-community justice experience on the US/Mexico border. Everyone is grateful to the Hilton Foundation for supporting this project.
The four novices/temporary professed and two professed Sisters from the Comboni, Holy Spirit, and Mary Immaculate congregations will live together as community, sharing prayer, preparing meals, and reflecting on their daily experiences at La Frontera, a hospitality ministry to immigrants coming into the United States. The group will be there for 16 days; please hold these Sisters and those with whom they will work in your prayers.
