    It was gladness of heart to read about Sister Pilar Rendon. As you can see we share a common name. My Rendon family came from Jalisco, Mexico. But so nice to read about Sister.

    A blessed new year!!!

    Blessings to Sister Pilar Rendon! Not only do we share the same last name of Rendon, we also share the mission of service to the poor as members of the Vincentian Family. So happy to have learned of her appointment.
