(Wauwatosa, WI) Sr. M. Immaculata announced today that the Hilton Foundation awarded a major grant to the Carmelite Sisters of the Divine Heart of Jesus in support of the new Carmelite Ministry of St. Teresa (CMST). The new ministry officially opened its doors to the public on October 15th, 2019 in a formal grand opening ceremony. The $6 million dollar facility will provide a family style residential environment for women with disabilities.
The Sisters were featured during a special segment on Today’s TMJ 4 with Julia Fello.
In addition to the residents, the new CMST center offers ample class and event space and will provide community based programming available to the public.
The Sisters felt called to the new ministry based on feedback from the community suggesting a lack of local resources providing housing and services to disabled persons. The community response has been strong, with a number of residents officially moving in immediately following the grand opening ceremony.
Guests are welcome to visit the impressive new facility and encouraged to explore ways to help the Sisters in their ministry. Volunteers and donors are welcome.
