New Journey in Our Lives

New Journey in Our Lives

Presently, our Sisters have retired from our active roles in ministry, healthcare, and education. We are now dedicating our time and energy to a spiritual ministry focusing on Vietnamese Sisters who are eager to learn English. Assisting them daily, to enhance their language skills and knowledge so they may serve the people of Vietnam more effectively.

The Sisters of Jesus Crucified embarked on this fulfilling journey of teaching Vietnamese Sisters when we were first asked to host two Vietnamese Sisters who had migrated to America for college a decade ago.

Over time, we became aware of an increasing demand among other Vietnamese Congregations wanting to send some of their Sisters abroad to learn English grammar so they could attend Catholic Colleges.

Concurrently, many of our aging community members were retiring from active roles in healthcare and education. As need and opportunity met, we realized that this could be a wonderful ministry for our retired sisters to stay active and to continue to serve the Lord.

As this mentorship expanded, we recognized the need for additional support

Consequently, we invited volunteer teachers to assist us in our mission of teaching English and English grammar preparing them to earn their degrees.

As they are being taught, these Vietnamese Sisters live with us and participate fully in our community life, as well as all our spiritual exercises as if they were members of our congregation.

This arrangement provides them an opportunity to experience an American congregation and enrich their own vocation. Simultaneously we get to learn about their culture and customs enhancing our Global awareness and fostering unity.
