Casa Guadalupe is a house of prayer and discernment for Catholic lay and consecrated women striving to live an authentic Franciscan spirituality in a communal life of prayer as well as service to the poor and the Church, under the spiritual direction of Fr. Agustino Torres, CFR.
The women at Casa Guadalupe discern their vocation through prayer, healing and service. The service mission of Casa Guadalupe is work with the poor and evangelization, especially in pro-life and chastity ministries.
The different ways that this comes to life are:
- feeding the hungry and tending the homeless with the CFRs
- pro-life ministry in front of abortion clinics
- work with at-risk women
- ministry of chastity education to youth and young adults through Corazon Puro and LIFENET
- foreign missions
- youth ministry
- ministry of sacred music
Casa Guadalupe strives to do this with an integral vision of human formation and the New Evangelization. An emphasis on the good, the true and the beautiful marks every step in what we hope to accomplish. It is dedicated to discernment of religious formation in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Paterson, New Jersey.
