A Year-Long Eucharistic Celebration in Praise and Thanksgiving

December 8, 2014 — December 8, 2015

With joy and humble thanksgiving, our community of Holy Spirit Adoration Sisters in Philadelphia celebrates 100 Years—a Jubilee of Perpetual Adoration. From the continual Source of Living Water, our Sisters are renewed each and every day by Adoration before the Blessed Sacrament. Living in an unbroken dialogue with God, as Holy Spirit Adoration Sisters we embark on a journey of silence, prayer and penance, aiming to draw others to the Spring of Life.

The Convent of Divine Love in Philadelphia was the first convent of the Holy Spirit Adoration Sisters after the Motherhouse. Today, the Sisters adore the Eucharistic Lord in 22 houses in 12 countries, in Africa, Asia, Europe, North America and South America. Explore our milestones over the past 100 years, and join us as we thank our Lord for His love and fidelity. As at our founding, today we continue to live out our vocation and strive to become ever closer to the mystery of God’s love.

May the newly-established tabernacle be an inexhaustible source of grace for the city of Philadelphia, the great Archdiocese, and the whole world. I hope the good Sisters will never lack zeal and devotion and give much joy to you.
