AN OASIS INSIDE THE PANDEMIC

They pray for us, for the ones that have lost their lives, for the end of the pandemic.
Very little has changed in the daily life of cloistered nuns from Tolosa (Basque Country, Spain) whose days are strictly organised and scheduled.

This is the reason why during the lockdown they received many phone calls by people who felt lost within the four walls. The nuns have always been ready to give advice to anyone in order to face this lockdown in the best way possible; they are aware how privileged they are and the gravity of the situation of others.

“WE NEVER FEEL BORED”

Genoveva, Mikaela, Rosario, Lurdes and Gurutze live in this convent, always optimistic, praying to God for protection.
