A Quiet Witness to the Power of Prayer
Twenty-seven years ago, seven Sisters of Perpetual Adoration made the long journey from Guadalajara, Mexico to the cold climes of Anchorage, Alaska, and established a cloistered, contemplative monastery in one of the most secular areas of our country. Today, three of the original seven sisters remain: Mother Milagrosa, Mother Victorias and Sister Josefina. Their tireless prayers offer spiritual support to the local Church. By their very presence, the sisters have spread joy, peace and comfort to the community, both Catholic and non-Catholic alike. Six new sisters have joined them and are ensuring that their quiet witness will continue to serve the Church in Alaska for generations to come.
