Welcome to Our Lady of Lourdes Convent Chapel of the Canossian Sisters of Sacramento. This is where we gather each morning and evening, to pray lauds and vespers in union with the Universal Church. We begin each day with the Angelus, the Morning Offering of our whole Day for the Holy Father’s Intentions, and pray to our Heavenly Father for a fidelity to the our charismatic roots grounded in Christ Crucified and our Lady of Sorrows.
Our Foundress, St. Magdalene of Canossa wrote in the first Rule for the Daughters of Charity, “Prayer is the exercise by which the soul draws close to the Lord. By thus learning to know him in some way, she becomes evermore disposed, and evermore enkindled with the desire, to love Him…in order to carry out more easily the first great Commandment of Charity, the Sisters are recommended the practice of Mental Prayer of the Heart, certainly not less than half an hour in the morning and half an hour in the evening.”
Please feel free to share your prayer intentions/requests, and we will bring these before the Lord during our times of prayer, uniting our intentions to yours, for the Glory of God.
As this site develops, we will be adding more pages and pictures of our community, and will link them here:
