Passionist Nuns Become a "Congregation"
Hello out there in cyberspace! Have you heard the news?
What news, you ask?
The REALLY BIG news, of course!
Just over three years ago, in 2015, the superiors of Passionist Nuns monasteries from around the world met in Rome and discerned the need to form a juridical structure of communion.

These three years of much prayer, work, and dialog on this important work in the revitalization of the Passionist Nuns, have borne their first fruits: On June 29, 2018, the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life formally erected the structure of communion, called a “Monastic Congregation,” approving its statutes.
