Since her first profession, she was sent to Santa Clara community in the province of Jujuy, in the north of Argentina, where she worked in a Center for Child Education. Later, she went to Buenos Aires.
During these years, she worked in the field of infant education and in youth vocation ministry. She is now completing her degree in education management. In 2016, Sr. Lorena participated in the preparation to perpetual vows in Haiti.
This event took place in Our Lady of Luján parish, a poor and simple neighbourhood of Banfield on the outskirts of Buenos Aires. The Eucharist was presided by two secular priests, the current pastor, Alejandro Silva and Father Arnaldo Villaba, former administrator and friend of the Sisters of the community.
Sister Lorena was accompanied by her family and 8 Sisters from the ‘Maria Luisa’ Delegation: 3 Sisters of her community, 2 from Ecuador and 3 from Peru. Were also at the celebration, the Friends of Wisdom, many members of the Christian community, as many adults as young people, with whom Lorena shared her life and her mission. The church was filled with faithful. For many, it was their first experience of a perpetual profession. It was an intense time of prayer and emotion, a clear witnessing of what Jesus and his Reign can inspire today in the lives of women like Lorena who answer Wisdom’s call : “Come, I want to make you happy” (LEW 66)
We acknowledge the help, collaboration and closeness of the Friends of Wisdom. Among these, many assumed responsibilities and are true collaborators in the mission of the Daughters of Wisdom in Argentina.
