Augustine Recollect Sisters of the Sicks

The congregation lives the spirituality and charism of its Founder Father Sebastián López de Murga OAR, who always reflected the joy of being a religious and priest, faithful to his Christian convictions and the Augustinian spirituality. This led him to form the San Ezequiel Moreno Foundation that was gradually spreading in Spain; To extended it in time, guard and energize this specific charism, he founded and the Congregation of Augustinian Recollect Sisters of the Sick, who dedicate themselves to the service of the sick, bringing relief, comfort, human and Christian warmth to the people who go through a situation of illness, loneliness and pain, especially those suffering from cancer. The congregation strives to build a community that is a model of coexistence in which freedom and solidarity come together. “The charismatic identity of the congregation manifests itself primarily through the testimony of consecrated life, unifying person and function, so that the doing expresses the being.… To perform the provision of this apostolic service the sisters will visit the sick in the places where they are and will care about their spiritual and material needs”.
