A Noviciate for the Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará in Brazil

Aid to the Church in Need has helped build a bedroom for the Mary of Jesus of Nazareth noviciate in Sao Paulo (Brazil). This novitiate belongs to the Institute “Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará”, the female branch of the Religious Family of the Incarnate Word. Mother Mary Divine Grace Lisboa de Castro writes to thank our benefactors for their support. “I can firmly say that Aid to the Church in Need, as a Pontifical Institution that helps the suffering Church, has been to the Religious Institutes worldwide – and especially for our Religious Family – one of the most effective tools for the growth and maintenance of our works, thus providing better conditions for the formation of our religious.” The sisters pray for ACN’s benefactors and ask Our Lord “to reward them with eternal life.”
