Friday Community Highlight: The Eudists of the Eleventh Hour

By | Nov 21, 2008

The Eudist Servants Of The Eleventh Hour is an association of the faithful whose members are sisters who are mature women who love Jesus and want to follow Him by serving the poor and the needy. The Eleventh Hour refers to the scripture where Jesus calls the last, and signifies that the community is for older women, generally between the ages of forty five and sixty five. (from the website)

The Eudist of the 11th Hour were founded by Mother Antonia Brenner.  Mother Antonia, though raised in Beverly Hills, lived under private vows for years, providing care for prisoners in La Mesa penitentiary in Tijuana, Mexico.  In 1997 Mother Antonia received permission to extend her ministry to other women.

The Eudists of the 11th Hour is a community for older women, generally 45-65, and age range where many communities will not accept them.  Each woman must be self-supporting and provide for her own healthcare.  Women who are discerning with the Eudists may spend 6-12 months with the community in Tijuana.  Vows are made for one year and renewed annually.  Members may continue to live in their home community, or they may live with the community in Tijuana.  However, they must still be self-supporting.
