It was founded on September 21, 2011 by our Reverend Mother María de Jesús Velarde.

Under her direction and guidance, on September 2014, we acquired a closed parish of the Catholic Diocese of Steubenville, Ohio. Our Bishop Jeffrey Marc Monforton, in a solemn ceremony blessed the image of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart and the altar of the church now known as Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Oratory.

In addition, within these 3.6 acres:

 

- The CONSTRUCTION OF THE NOTIVIATE is planned. In September 2015, Bishop Monforton, blessed the cornerstone of the new building, during the visitation of Mother General and Mother Vicar.

 

- FIAT House is located: former convent that we are renovating counting with the help of volunteers and grants of foundations.

 

The visit of His Holiness, Pope Francis gave us a new impulse as contemplatives and missionaries of the Love of God.

 

"Mission is always the fruit of a life which knows what it is to be found and healed, encountered and forgiven. Mission is born of a constant experience of God’s merciful anointing."                                        (Homily Canonization Mass Blessed Junipero Serra)

 

His words motivate us to pray and work in the various missions entrusted to us:

VOCATIONAL MINISTRY

YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULT MINISTRY NEW EVANGELIZATION
Prenovitiate
Candidacy
“Pre-consecrated life" Weekend
Vocation awareness trips
DOYMAR
Chaplain Ministry at Franciscan University of Steubenville
Other Annual Activities

We give thanks to God for the blessings poured upon us throughout these months. We know that they are only seeds of a great project for His greater glory and for the good of the Church in America.

 

-You can make it possible for this seed to become a great tree, contributing toward our efforts to reach more youth, teens, children and families.

 

-You can make it possible for American vocations to share our Charism and give themselves to the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in union with Our Lady….

 

…help us with your prayer and, if God has blessed you with material goods, invest them in a work that will recompense one hundred to one and eternal life.  To contribute toward the purchase of this property in Steubenville, DONATIONS CAN BE MADE TO NAME OF:
