Ein Karem Guest House: Our Ministry of Hospitality

We have a Guest House in which we welcome pilgrims from all walks of life. The rooms are simple and comfortable. We have staff, associates, brothers, apostolic and contemplative sisters working together to in making the stay of our visitors enjoyable.
As part of our formation, we the novices are going to be part of ministry of Hospitality. Starting this month until January two novices will help in cleaning the rooms, laundry, washing the dishes and welcoming our guest. For this month of November Clara and I (Arlyne) are doing the volunteer work. Being part of our ministry in the Guest here in Ein Karem is great opportunity to know more about our Charism as well as the people from different walks of life. Clara and I are happy to be able to help in the Guest House. And for the next two months the other four novices will also experience what we are experiencing now.

Visitors from Canada!

Sr. Philis who gave us good books and her friends came to visit us after lunch. We had a nice time together. They also told us about their time visiting some places in Jerusalem.
