Sister Alma, Sponsor a Sister

Sponsor Sr. Alma

I am Sister Alma. I am currently a Mother Sister in Girlstown, Villa de los Niños, in Chalco, Mexico. I have been in the congregation of the Sisters of Mary for 4 years.

I can relate the children’s story with my own because am Mexican by birth and I attended and graduated from Girlstown, Villa de los Niñas de Chalco myself. As a student here my religious vocation was born. My faith started from within the family here, but now, I experience God’s love through my service to girls, inspired by Father Al, our founder.

My daily life consists of nurturing my spiritual life and giving good daily service to the girls under my care. I find different spiritual struggles as blessings because that is where I find the best inspiration to continue in my vocation.
