Like every year, a group of sisters, coming from different continents, meet to do the fifth year of temporary vows and discernment for their perpetual devotion to the Lord within Hospitaller life.

On this occasion, for special reasons, the “Josefinato” is being held at the home in Palencia (Spain), specifically at the training centre. There are 13 sisters participating in this experience and they are from different countries like Cameroon, the Philippines, India and Vietnam, among other countries in Asia.

This is a key time in the vocational process for all of them whose goals are, among other ones, to achieve a harmonious integration between the human dimension and the spiritual dimension with the distinctive charismatic elements.

The experience began on 30 October 2017, the anniversary of the death of the Venerable María Josefa Recio, the founder of the Congregation, and will continue until 2 August 2018, the anniversary of the death of María Angustias Giménez, also a founder of the Congregation.



“The vitality of the charism, the urgencies of the poor and sick press us; And our response will be swift and bold”
