São Luís : Filipinho, MA



São Luis is an island situated in north eastern Brazil, on the Atlantic coast, in the state of Maranhão of which it is the capital. The island is sorrounded by extensive beaches.

Four Brazilian Sisters who made their noviciate in Canada, return to their country of origin. They must prepare professionally to carry out their apostolate in their country by completing their studies at the Normal School of São Luis and, furthermore, they must continue their formation as scholastics. This, in the Regional House of the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Saint Hyacinthe in Brazil.

The Regional House is the heart of the Region of Brazil. It is a place of welcoming, open to conviviality, spirituality, formation, and leisure. As a group, we commit ourselves:
-to welcoming all persons and all groups that knock at our door;
-to serve in various pastoral sectors: childhood, youth, vocational ministries, liturgy.
Come and see the heart of the Region of Brazil, the house of life, of harmony, of joy, and of encounters.
