“JOSEFINAS” SISTERS 2017

Our “mother home” in Ciempozuelos, Spain, is hosting a group of sisters from different continents, who have come together for the fifth year of temporary vows and approval for perpetual devotion to the Lord, within the Hospitaller life.

It is a fundamental time in the vocational process, and there’s no better place to experience this than in Ciempozuelos, the “mother home” of the Congregation, where this story of love first began, thanks to an Italian, San Benito Menni, and two Spanish women from Granada, Mª Josefa Recio and Mª Angustias Giménez.

There are 14 “Josefinas” sisters, from different countries: Philippines, Ghana, Mozambique, Cameroon, Togo, Democratic Republic of the Congo and Vietnam.

The experience began on the 30th of October, the anniversary of the death of the Venerable María Josefa Recio, founder of the Congregation, and will conclude in August 2017.
