Who We Are

“Work­ers of the Vine­yard” is a convent of the Chaldean Catholic Diocese of St. Peter the Apos­tle, USA, who have promised their gifts for ded­i­cated ser­vice to Christ and his Church in order that they might grow in holi­ness by fill­ing the needs of the Dio­cese and their
com­mu­nity, as directed by the Eparchial Bishop.

The Work­ers of the Vine­yard first began in 2007 as a house for dis­cern­ing lay women. It was estab­lished by His Excel­lency, Bishop Sarhad Yawsip Jammo as a house for young women to enter and dis­cern the will of the Lord. Today, the Work­ers of the Vine­yard is a convent of reli­gious sis­ters. On May 10, 2012, two of the orig­i­nal mem­bers who joined made their Final Vows.

We are Chaldean Rite Catholics and one of the Eastern Churches in union with the Holy See. Chaldeans are descendants of the ancient Babylonians and make up the Christian population in Iraq. Due to war and persecution, a majority of Chaldeans have left Iraq and are living in different countries around the world.

Our apostolate is teaching through schools and the media. If you would like more information on our mission, please visit our About page.

 

The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; pray therefore the Lord of harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”
