Vow of Hospitality

 

1

By our vow of hospitality we promise God to consecrate ourselves exclusively to the service of the elderly poor. We welcome them into our homes, form one family with them, accompany them from day to day and care for them with love and respect until God calls them home.
Through our vow of hospitality the Church has given us a mandate to prolong Christ’s mission of charity to convey to the elderly, in the concrete realities of everyday life, the kindness and love of God for them, his eldest children.

As Hospitaller religious our lives are made up of many humble, hidden tasks. We serve the elderly day and night, striving to meet their physical needs, to make them happy and to minister to them spiritually. We accomplish our mission together as a community, each one bringing her gifts and talents to the work of hospitality.
