Three young people, two men and a woman have been welcomed into the Convent of our Servite Sisters in Mauer. The young men in their twenties arrived at the beginning of the year and the young women, who is the wife of one of these men and the sister of the other, arrived here last Wednesday, having travelled from Syria to Beirut, Lebanon where she had to organise a visa and then she travelled via Egypt Sr Magdalena has organised this in conjunction with the Bishop of the Syrian Orthodox Church and one of the local Parishes, both of whom will be responsible for seeing that they obtain all the correct papers for living in Vienna and also have all they need from a practical point of view.

This is a true reflection of our Servite charism and a living out of the Gospel of Matthew: 25: 31 -46.
