Our faith enables us to see in our history the mark of the Holy spirit at qork among us. Our Congregation is «the fruit of a slow germination and of God’s patient endurance». God has always gone before us. Rereading our past and the past of the religious families which are united to us, we are filled with wonder in God’s unforeseen ways.
A series of encounters weave for us a new story:
In 1970, Rome ratified an association between the Daughters of jesus of Kermaria and the contemplative community of «Action Grâces de Mauron». The call to live a new opening on both sides is a source of life. This union draws the line of thanksgiving that will spring from this unprecedented adventure.
In 1990, the Sisters of the Immaculate Conception of Paris merged with the Daughters of Jesus of Kermaria. God works through human stories that have met and grafted to each other, in a communion with Christ who calls to continue his mission in the Church.
Between the years 2000 and 2011 an unprecedented encounter between the Daughters of Jesus of Vaylats and the Daughters of Jesus of Kermaria occurs. It is the beginning of a walk together on a path of collaboration that becomes, over time, a path of communion and a covenant sealed in 2011.
The ways of God are mysterious. Through different histories and origins, we are invited to a deepening of the diverse expressions of our charisms. It is a collective call to more humanity.
The ways of God are mysterious. His grace lives in our histories and enables us to spread ever more broadly the charism which is enriched by its sharing.
