Rooted in Christ


Welcome to our Marian, Franciscan, Missionary Family

whose life direction is becoming a contemplative,

compassionate  presence to those most in need.




A season of rebirth…

A time of renewal…                 A day of resurrection..


Today we share the peace and joy that God offered us when He gave us His only son.”


                     May this Easter bring light into your life and return you to God’s unending love.


                                                                     HAPPY EASTER!
