Mission

We are a cloistered community observing Papal Enclosure, called to an apostolate of prayer, sacrifice, and penance for all humanity, the intentions of Holy Church, and especially for priests. Guided by the teachings of Saints Teresa of Jesus (Avila) and John of the Cross, we seek Divine intimacy and live a hidden life of solitude and silence. We wear a full, traditional habit. We remain bilingual (English/Spanish) in grateful recognition of our Spanish Teresian heritage, but also toward our community’s Foundresses who fled the religious persecution of the Mexican Cristero War (1927) and who founded our new home in San Francisco (1928). Daily life includes: Holy Mass (Both Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms), full Liturgy of the Hours, communal Rosary, and Spiritual Reading. Recreation is taken together as a community. There are also days of Eucharistic Adoration and Benediction on Sundays.
