Feeding the Poor in Angola
In the beginning of this year, our sisters with the help of local people, distributed food to the Angola village people. It was a generous donation from a Chinese community in New York, USA for the intention of giving New year gifts to the children. After some discussion, the sisters decided that the best gift would be food.

"Vocation does not come from a voice out there calling me to be something I am not. It comes from a voice in here calling me to be the person I was born to be, to fulfill the original self-hood given me at birth by God." Thomas Merton
