The Holy Spirit; Jesus; Mary; & Joseph

Gemma -- Promoter-Mentor

While I was praying at the Volunteer Womens' Medical Clinic in Knoxville, Tennessee, I received the Holy Spirit Inspiration of Dominican red-habited sisters who would work to end the Culture of Death.

While I was praying at the Knoxville Center for Reproductive Health, also in Knoxville, I received the Holy Spirit Inspiration of pink-habited sisters who would pray to end the Culture of Death.

I went to the Diocese of Knoxville's premier bishop, Anthony J. O'Connell, regarding the Sisters of the Holy Innocents & St. Gianna Molla; and the Contemplatives of Life; and establishing them in the Diocese of Knoxville.  He said yes to establishing this ministry, hence this website.

Since I am married, yet received the Holy Spirit Inspiration, I am the promoter-mentor.

Karen -- Promoter

When I was living in the Diocese of Toledo, Ohio, I felt the call to Religious Life, and said yes.  I started discerning what charism God wanted me to pursue.

My family moved to the Diocese of Knoxville, Tennessee, and I continued discerning what charism God wanted me to pursue.

During this time, I joined my parish's Respect Life Committee, and learned about and joined the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life.  From this, I learned that God wanted me to pursue the Pro-Life Charism in the Religious Life.

When I looked at the Pro-Life orders that I knew about, I soon discovered that I was beyond the entrance age limit.  I didn't give up, and looked to see if there were any other Pro-Life Orders out there.

God closes one door and opens another

During my search, I found the Sisters of the Holy Innocents & St. Gianna Molla that Gemma was promoting.

Seeing that the Holy Spirit Inspirations happened at the abortuaries in the Diocese of Knoxville where God had moved us to, I felt that this is what God wanted me to do: establish the Sisters of the Holy Innocents & St. Gianna Molla, as well as the Contemplatives of Life Eremitical Network.

Establishing the Lay Association

The next step was to establish the Dr. Gianna's Assistants for Life lay association, where we can all gather together, and then break off and work on establishing the Sisters of the Holy Innocents & St. Gianna Molla.

I went to Bishop Stika to see about establishing the Dr. Gianna's Assistants for Life lay association, and he said yes.

The Next Step: Please click here to join the Dr. Gianna's Assistants for Life lay association. Come join me in establishing the Sisters of the Holy Innocents & St. Gianna Molla!

God bless you!
