Help me identify this nun

Recommended Posts

ToJesusMyHeart

I saw a nun today and didn't recognize her habit.

Help me find what order she's with! Black habit, black scapular, white long-sleeved mock turtleneck undershirt, white veil as fully professed. She's not a novice.

Also wearing a wooden cross without corpus.

Any ideas?

I found her! She belongs to the Eudist Servants of the 11th Hour. I have never heard of them before today! 

They are a really unique community in that they only accept older women, ages 45-65. Very cool. 

"The Eudist Servants Of The Eleventh Hour offers women an opportunity to follow a vocation later in life – a kind of “encore” dedicated to Our Lord. When candidates are accepted by the community, they are invited to spend nine months at Casa Corazon de Maria, in Tijuana, Mexico. This is a period of discernment and formation, before entering full time ministry or considering the profession of vows. We make and renew our vows of poverty, chastity, obedience and divine agape, on March 25 each year, the Feast of the Annunciation Of The Blessed Virgin Mary, or August 19, the Feast day of St. John Eudes. Servant candidates should be between the ages of 45 to 65.

The Eudist Servants Of The Eleventh Hour is made up of mature women who were called to a religious life later in life. All members must be self-supporting and provide for their own health care. Whenever that is not possible we try to assist. We do not live in common and we do not draw from a common fund. We are self-caring in that we provide for our own personal needs and contribute to the needs of our missions, as individual circumstances allow.

If you are a woman and believe you are called to serve the Lord, and are:

  • single, widowed, or divorced with an annulment
  • are in good spirits
  • between the ages of 46-65
  • desire to live a life in service to the poor as a member of a religious community

If you meet these criteria, then becoming a Eudist Servant Of The Eleventh Hour may be appropriate for you."

Quote

The Eudist Servants Of The Eleventh Hour is a new branch, a twig sprouting on the 400 year-old tree of the extended spiritual family of St. John Eudes, whose strong branches include the Congregation Of The Sisters Of Our Lady Of Charity, our Eudist sisters, and the Congregation Of Jesus And Mary, our Eudist priests.

Both of these orders were founded by Saint John Eudes, close friend of Saint Vincent de Paul, in the early 17th century. The Eudist Servants Of The Eleventh Hour is an association of the faithful whose members are sisters who are mature women who love Jesus and want to follow Him by serving the poor and the needy. The Eleventh Hour refers to the scripture where Jesus calls the last, and signifies that the community is for older women, generally between the ages of forty-five and sixty-five. The reference to St. John Eudes is recognition that the community is part of the Eudist Congregation, and it is also in honor of St. John Eudes spirituality.

In 2003 the Eudist Servants Of The Eleventh Hour community was formally accepted by Bishop Rafael Romo Munoz of Tijuana, Mexico. The community’s mission is to minister to the poor and the needy, to bring to them the love of Jesus Christ. To accomplish this members must, in their hearts and in their lives, bear the pain of the poor, the imprisoned, the sick, the rejected, the forgotten and the abandoned children of God.
