Sister Mariana C., 2008-2011

Sr Mariana Canteros had a part time mis­sion in the office. She was in charge of the interns and of the follow-up of the American vol­un­teers’ spon­sors. She was also very involved in the activ­i­ties in the neigh­bor­hood: she vis­ited our iso­lated neigh­bors, and went twice a week to visit the res­i­dents of a nearby nursing-home. She met Heart’s Home in 1994 and went as a mis­sionary to Brazil, where she stayed for almost three years. In 1997, she joined the com­mu­nity of the Servants of God’s Presence in France, where she attended a four-year pro­gram in Philosophy and Theology. She was then sent back to South America, in Peru, where she led the com­mu­nity of the Servants of God’s Presence for six years. Until October 2009, she was also the Visitor of the Heart’s Home com­mu­nity in Ecuador. She joined Heart’s Home USA in January 2008 and left in January 2011 to help with the foun­da­tion of a new Heart’s Home Center in Buenos Aires.
