The Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word graciously welcomed Sr. Peter, Sr. Michelle and Mother Mark to Villa de Matel while they were training potential Mother Angeline Ministers in Houston, Texas.The Sisters co-sponsor the Christus Health System of more than 600 centers in the US and internationally. They certainly went out of their way to make the Sisters feel at home on their lovely campus.

Training sessions for the Mother Angeline Ministries was held across town at St. Dominic Village, Houston's only Catholic retirement community. It too had a beautiful campus which encompasses a residence for retired priests, independent living facility, assisted living facility, and skilled nursing facility. They also have Angel House which provides temporary home for patients or family members receiving treatment in the Texas Medical Center across the street.
