"Jesus speaks in silence in the Mystery of the
Eucharist. He reminds us every time that following him means going out of
ourselves and not making our life a possession of our own, but rather a gift to
him and to others." – Pope Francis
Jenifer Santiago was deeply touched by the mission of Mustard Seed Communities (MSC) and it was her great
wish to spend time with her spiritual godchildren at Jacob’s Ladder in Jamaica. She believed in the value of a Formation Center and Program for the continued spiritual care of the populations served by MSC. Both are central to promoting
vocations and training future priests, deacons, and sisters to live and work throughout
MSC apostolates and programs across the world, ministering
to the spiritual and pastoral well-being of the children, staff, mission
volunteers and beneficiaries of outreach programs.
Santiago Family’s wish is to support the spiritual foundation of Mustard Seed
now and into the future. In fulfillment of this wish, family and friends came together to fund the Rosa Mystica Chapel at the St. Andrew's House of Formation at Jacob’s
Ladder in memory of Jenifer. It
would bring Jenifer great joy to know that so many who loved her gave to make this memorial a reality, and continue to support MSC's mission of caring for the most vulnerable.
