The expulsion  of our sisters in China during the communist govern-ment takeover opened new  frontiers for our mission. The path of our Lord led our sisters towards the United States, after a dominican friar invited us to work in and run the School of Saint Joseph in Alice, Texas. A teaching apostolate such as this one had the Lord’s blessing. After a time, the sisters took charge of the catechism programme in the parish, and were giving spiritual guidance to both children and adults, whilst providing spiritual retreats and other pastoral ministries  needed in the parish. At present there is a high school in Corpus Christi, Texas and in Santa Paula and Oxnard, California.
