This is fun.

This order was founded by an American woman who has been declared Venerable and has a miracle currently under investigation for purposes of her beatification. They are located in Louisiana,Texas, California, D.C, Alabama and also have sisters in Central America and Africa.

More information for my answer - [b]Society of the Holy Child Jesus[/b] is an international community of [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nun"]nuns[/url] that was founded in England in 1846 by Philadelphia-born [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornelia_Connelly"]Cornelia Connelly[/url] and they have 3 provinces- US, Europe and Africa. Cornelia Connelly is on the Most Verable list.

Good guess Darlene, but I was thinking of The Sisters of the Holy Family, founded in New Orleans by Ven. Henriette de Lille who was a free woman of color. This is such a cool way to learn about the variety of religious orders.

This particular community was founded on All Saints' Day 1975 in Paris France, founded by a man who lived as a hermit for two years prior to founding the community. NOTE: he is still alive.

That's the problem with Google and my photographic memory! LOL!

Here is my next clue:

This order was founded in Mexico in 1992. Their main apostolate is praying for priests and running a boarding house for girls.

I think its franciscan.. but I am not sure..
[/quote]

No, sorry. It's a separate order not associated with the Franciscan spirituality.

No, they were founded in Ireland by Ven. Catherine McAuley.

The order I'm describing was founded in Mexico.

Okay erm..

Daughters of Charity?
Though their apostolate is not exactly as you hinted.
[/quote]

Nope! (LOL, I guess I'm making the hints a little too hard. I'm just trying to make it more fun so you keep having to search.)

Dinner is ready so I'll pop in afterward.

Does everyone give up? Here's another clue about the order if it'll help:

They are non-cloistered contemplatives.
