A Peek at the Celebration

    Ahhh…where to begin!  It was a grand celebration with 6 of the 8 Passionist daughter and granddaughter houses represented at our original monastery of nuns founded in 1910 in Pittsburgh.

Most of the Sisters who were present for the occasion are seen in the above photo along with Fr. Jerome Vereb, CP and Fr. John Harvey a diocesan priest and close friend of the Sisters in Pittsburgh.

    Communities represented

  • Erlanger, Kentucky
  • Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
  • The Philippines
  • Japan
  • Whitesville, Kentucky
  • Korea
  • Scranton, Pennsylvania
  • not present – Ellisville, Missouri and our 2 nuns in England (residing in Belmont Abbey)

    I hope to write again soon. Thank you for your support of our hidden contemplative life!

    May God be praised for 100 years of hidden contemplative Passionist presence in the USA. 

    O God, grant us the grace of holy and healthy vocations as we begin the next 100 years!

  1. Hi, almost a year later and I am looking at this article. A bit confused 🙂 Is Mother Joyce Foga in this community? I wish to send her my love and have fond memories of her as we lived and studied together in Menands Mt St Augustine. Mother Joyce I have a picture still here with me in Australia, of you in the missions!

    Love Trish (Pat)

    Greetings! No, Mother Joyce resides is the Superior of the community in Pittsburgh, PA. Our community is located in Whitesville, KY.

  2. Dear sisters.

    Did You have passionist nuns in England again? You write in “A peek at the Celebration” about “our 2 nuns in England”.

    In Christ

    We have 2 nuns – Sr. Regina and Sr. Monica – who live at Belmont Abbey in Belmont, Hereford, UK.

We'd love to hear from you...
