Sr. Ma. Nazarena Michaela L. Gimeno, SOCIM, Local Superior, seeks approval of their presence in Lamdalag, Lake Sebu as administrator/manager of the Divine Mercy Retreat Center.
SOCIM is Suore Oblate del CuoreImmacolato di Maria – a semi-contemplative but prevalently contemplative congregation.
Founded on 2 November 1964, Torino, Italy by Ludovica Pellegrine, Swiss-Italian. It is still of Diocesan Right. There are 90 members scattered in Italy, Albania, Romania and Camarines Norte (1991).
Charism: prayer and penance. One apostolate is catechesis for children, youth, adults and families. Another is to spread the message of Fatima.
One of their members is a sister of Mrs. Linda Suson Brasileño who owns the land and retreat house in Lamdalag. She will donate a parcel of land for the Sisters.
