A BRIEF HISTORY OF OUR CONGREGATION
The congregation of the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament (SBSN), was Founded in 2004 by Sister Catherine Okechukwu, following in the footsteps of THE Blessed Clement Marchisio of Revlba-Italy. It is an Institute of apostolic religious life whose members take the three vows of: Obedience, Poverty, and Chastity. We are a diocesan congregation rights. Presently are based in Archdiocese of Onitsha, Nnewi Diocese, and Archdiocese of Abuja and in Diocese of Raleigh, North Carolina.
CHARISM: The Charism of the congregation is the Eucharistic adoration and honoring Our Lord Jesus Christ present in the Blessed Sacrament.
The apostolate are: we make Altar Bread, (Hosts) for Holy Masses, and the production of Sacred Vessels & Vestments (Albs, Chasubles, Surplices and Linens. We make Candles in our other communities. Take Care of the Elderly population (Sisters Aide Health Services Inc.) and Religious education.
The SBSN dedicate their lives in making Vestments (Chasubles, Albs, Surplices and other sacred linens). We work in the Hospitals, teaching Catechetical works (preparations for communion and confirmation). We promote and help young people realize their true Vocations in life. We also do some Domestic works. We take care of the sick elderly population and the poor people around us.
