This core group of sisters established a community in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas in 2022. This creation of an inter-congregational community is a concrete expression of our OSP and IHM charisms.

In McAllen, Texas and in Reynosa, Mexico, the sisters engage in direct service to asylum seekers who need temporary respite and help contacting their sponsors in the US.

Core Community 2023 McAllen Texas

L-R: Sisters Mary Elaine Anderson (Scranton), Sister Carmen Armenta Lara (Monroe),
Sister Elvia Mata Ortega (Scranton), and Sister Rose Patrice Kuhn (Immaculata)
