“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. If you would like to learn more about Chaldeans, please visit www.kaldu.org.
Our apostolate is teaching through schools and the media. If you would like more information on our mission, please visit our About page.
