The Sisters of Our Lady of Guadalupe and Saint Joseph were founded in 1976, in the Diocese of Gallup, New Mexico. Their spirit is contemplative in action and is reflected in their motto: “A community of prayer and service in peace, joy, and love.” Their charism is based on the unity and love asked by our Lord Jesus in John Chapter 17, “That all may be one as You and I are one, so the world may believe.”
The sisters serve the poor and needy; assist in paralegal and immigration matters; in education (nursery schools to universities); parochial and mission works, and orphanages. Meditation, adoration before the Most Blessed Sacrament, praying the rosary, and the divine office are part of their spiritual practices in a community setting.
