Marcos Paz is in the capital of Buenos Aires, belonging to the diocese of Mercedes-Lujan. In Lujan there is a great Basilica where hundreds of pilgrims visit our Lady of Lujan, who is the patron of whole Argentina.
In 1997 we received an invitation from Fr. Emilio CSSR, who knew our congregation very closely as he was one of the team members of the curia of Bishops house in Añatuya, the first missionaries who arrived to this place along with Mons. Jorge Gottau and Antonio Baseotto, precisely they who invited us to Argentina mission. We were asked to take charge of a home for the senior citizens which was run by the municipality of the place, in Marcos Paz. This house was built by the Perez Companc, benefactors of añatuya diocese, who gave this project to the municipality. But Fr. Emilio wanted the presence of the sisters, and therefore the first contract was done by them, that they would take complete charge of all the expenses: the salaries of the workers, food and health of the inmates ..etc and Administration would be done by the sisters.
MOTHER Andrea, the Superior General of that time discerned the will of God with her Counsillors and we took up this project and inaugurated the house on 6th May 1999 which is known as “Santa Teresa de Jesus de Jornet”, suggested by the Parish preist Fr.Mario Peralta.
