Established in 2004, in El Paso, Texas, Casa Alexia is a joint ministry of the Latin American and United States Provinces of the School Sisters of St. Francis. Our goal of serving migrants, refugees, and victims of violence on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border became even more of a reality when, in 2009, three additional sisters expanded the ministry into Juárez, Mexico. They settled in a small parish house in the heart of a colonia, or barrio (see “Locations” below), in one of the poorest sections of the city. There they provide numerous programs and services to the people of Jesús Obrero (Jesus the worker) Parish, including ministering to the families of those who have been tortured, disappeared, or killed.
Today, we are six sisters, working in solidarity with our partners in mission, to realize the SSSF’s vision of a world transformed through peace, justice, and love.
The Congregational Direction of the School Sisters of St. Francis is the focus of the community at Casa Alexia.
