Open House
On February 8, 2015, religious houses all over the country opened their doors for a Day with Religious. All of our convents participated in this event to celebrate the Year of Consecrated Life.

Sr M Angela greets guests arriving at the front door of our Motherhouse.

Sr M Lois guides our visitors through the convent while sharing with them a little bit of our history. Pictured here is the family of Sr Mary Bosco, one of our novices.

Sr M Lucille and Sr M Julitta accept prayer requests which were placed in our Adoration Chapel.

Our Sisters in Indianapolis gather with Father Todd. Father shared a story about our community: He went up to a Notre Dame game with some of his friends and since they were in the area they stopped by our Motherhouse. One of his friends had been talking the whole trip about how he didn’t believe in God. After they left the man said "That’s the happiest group of women I’ve ever seen." When he talks to Father Todd he still asks how the women up there are, and Father tells him, "they are still just as happy".

Sr M Aloysius, Sr M Eileen and Sr M Rose greet guests at our convent in Hammond, IN.

At our Motherhouse, the guests were invited to join us for Evening Prayer and Benediction to close the Open House. Quite a few guests decided to join us!

At the close of our Open House the Sisters stood on the front porch to wave goodbye as guests departed.
