Konvente in Waldniel – 15 Schwestern

Die meisten der 15 Schwestern, die in den Waldnieler Konventen leben, sind schon im Rentenalter und haben als ehemalige Kinderdorfmütter die Rolle der Großmutter oder sogar Urgroßmutter übernommen: Sie waren lange im Bethanien Kinderdorf und haben dort viele Kinder großgezogen. Diese Beziehungen pflegen wir gern; sie halten oft ein Leben lang. Auch sonst nehmen wir am Leben des Kinderdorfes teil und sind in der Pfarrei aktiv, soweit es unsere Kräfte zulassen.

Our origin continues to exist

One of our sisters regularly goes to prison. This is very important to us because it is the origin of Bethany: We all need forgiveness from time to time and before God everyone has the chance for a new beginning.

Convent in Waldniel

Since 2013, most of our sisters live again in the listed "House Clee". In 1952 our then superior, Mother Imelda, bought it for little money. She was not really interested in the house, but in the wonderful park in which it is situated. She wanted it so that she could build the children's village. In 1956 she actually put it into operation, and since then it has been growing and thriving. The park with its pond is eagerly used and loved by all who live here.

The somewhat younger sisters live in another building on the same grounds, in the Convent Jean Joseph. 

Our Prioresses are Sr. Lydia (Mary in Clover) and Sr. Jordana (Jean Joseph)
