Father James Hess, O.Carm.

Chaplain Saint Teresa's Motherhouse, Germantown, NY



Dear Family, Benefactors and Friends,

Christmas Greeting from Avila by the Hudson! As we celebrate the gift of our Heavenly Father, His only begotten Son, we are thankful for the great gift you are to us, as we continue the vision of Venerable Mother Angeline Teresa to care for the Aged and Infirm. Your love, supports and prayers empower the mission to go on.

The Scriptures tell us there was not any room in the inn for the Holy Family. With God's help and blessing, the Sisters have been making room for the elderly for 90 years. This is possible through the love of our families, benefactors who believe in our ministry, and friends who are always there to support the Sisters.

May our infant Savior warm your hearts this Christmas and grant you every blessing in the New Year!


Father Jim
