We are a small Roman Catholic monastic community formed in the Archdiocese of San Antonio in 2001. Being a young and still very small community, our official canonical status is that of a ‘private association of the faithful with juridic personality’. Our community is made up of priests, men and women religious, consecrated laymen and laywomen, and a lay branch known as Amici Christi.
As a monastic community, our first apostolate is that of prayer. We invite the public to share in our public prayer times, community Masses and Holy Hours of Eucharistic Adoration. Our apostolate also includes various retreats, in particular, two silent retreats known as Encounter With Jesus (EWJ) and Cor Jesu. Several members of our community are bi-lingual, and we make an effort to offer our activities in English and Spanish.
Determining whether one has a vocation with the Mission of Divine Mercy involves a careful process of vocational discernment, guidance, education, formation, and training in the religious life over a number of years.
If you feel that God is calling you to discern a vocation with the MDM Community, you can get in touch with us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that a first step for any vocational discernment with MDM is to make an Encounter With Jesus (EWJ) retreat. You can click here to learn more about the EWJ and to register for a retreat.
