Who are we

We are Sisters of the Word of God, a community born in Spain in 1963.

María Magdalena Bennasar Oliver, from Mallorca, has studied theology in several universities in Spain and abroad. The title “Master of Divinity” is from the Franciscan School of Theology in Berkeley, California.

She has lived in Australia, the United States, and in different places in Spain working pastorally in parishes, universities, with young adults and adults, forming part of pastoral teams in different dioceses.

Our work has always been associated with the theological-spiritual formation of pastoral agents and with the formation of small communities of faith.

 

Carmen Notario Ajuria was born in Bilbao, Basque Country, in Spain. Her “Master of Divinity” is from Weston Jesuit School of Theology in Boston. Shee has lived in the United States, Ireland and England and in different places in Spain working pastorally in parishes, universities, with young people and adults forming part of pastoral teams in different dioceses.

Our aim is that people may have a well grounded spirituality. This is why we combine biblical interpretation with personal and communal times of prayer. Our intent is that people may learn to nourish themselves through the Word and their commitment may come out of their relationship with God.

From 2001 to 2004 we lived in Palma de Mallorca where we were both religion teachers in public high schools.

After that we have worked in the area of spirituality and Christian formation through retreats, workshops, prayer groups….
