Brothers and Sisters in Christ, a bit late, nevertheless we wish to share with you some of the important events at our Community of Alamo, Texas.

Profession of Temporal Vows
Sister Beatriz Ayala


We thank our Lord for not abandoning this seed planted at the
Alamo, and for permitting us to see the first fruits. Four years after arriving on Texan ground, this past 1st of August, 2006, the religious profession of temporal vows of our Sister Beatriz Ayala took place. Hers is the first vocation of our foundation, taking place in our Church of “San Jose”. [St. Joseph]. The Most Reverend, His Excellency, Bishop Raymundo Peña, celebrated Mass, exhorting our Sister to faithfully follow the Gospels of Christ, through the example of Our Father St. Francis. In a harmonious setting, this event took place—in simplicity.
