Today, Sisters Hospitallers celebrate its 137th anniversary and the Feast of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Our Institution strives to continue the mission of our founders with the same passion, love, care and faith they had. In England, co-workers, sisters and volunteers work together to provide the best care to our residents. The hospitaller identity is present in our everyday life and activities.
During the Thanksgiving celebration for all these years at the service of those in need, three empty jugs were displayed, symbolising the pouring out of our lives, and filling them with the love of Christ and the spirit of our Charism. Symbols of the Eucharist as the source of sustaining our spiritual lives; a flower representing “Granada” the place of origin of our Foundresses Maria Josefa Recio and Maria Angustias Jimenez; and other flowers representing the diversity of our presence in the world were also arranged.
Celebrating 137 Years of Sisters Hospitallers
Our elderly have been to concerts and outings where they enjoyed the lovely weather and nature. We also celebrated the royal wedding and birthdays, and welcomed volunteers, students and performers who came to the care homes to entertain us and spend some time with us.
