(Trinitarians of Mary)

Mission: Striving to make our monasteries Eucharistic Centers where people may come and share in our life of adoration.

Number Served: Over 30,000 individuals annually.

Director: Mother Lillie Diaz and Sister Catarina

Location: Carretera Libre Tijuana-Tecate, Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico

SHI Partnership Began: 1994

Project Overview: Trinitarians of Mary was founded by Mother Lillie Diaz in 1992 after a Pilgrimage to Fatima, Portugal. While on Pilgrimage, she received a calling to found a religious community dedicated to Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration, in the spirit of the Fatima message, for the building up of the Church in the World and in support of Catholic Priests. The Trinitarians of Mary were subsequently canonically erected as a Public Association of the Faithful on December 12, 1993, by His Excellency, Most Rev. Bishop Emilio Berlié Belaunzarán.

The Trinitarians of Mary are a Roman Catholic community of women who lead non-cloistered contemplative life in the service of perpetual Eucharist Adoration.  Twenty-four hours a day, the sisters adore Our Lord Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Each sister has between 1-2 hours a day and 1-2 hours a night of solitary Eucharist Adoration.  In addition to their primordial occupation of daily prayer, and with the help of SHI and other community organizations, the Sisters provide bi-weekly food distribution, clothing, education, youth and minister retreats, and also work with four drug rehabilition centers in the community. The sisters welcome people from all walks of life whose spiritual and material needs brings them to their monasteries.
