Sr. Eileen Leon
Sister Eileen was born and raised in Lima, Peru where she met the members of the Religious Institute Pro Ecclesia Sancta (“For the Holy Church”). She was very drawn to their charism of holiness and devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. She joined them in 2006 after graduating from college with a degree in Business from the University of Lima. She professed her perpetual vows in 2012 and was sent to the United States to start a new mission of sisters. She holds a Masters in Theology from the Saint Paul Seminary and currently serves as the local superior of the community of sisters in the Diocese of Sioux Falls. She is grateful to have had the opportunity to minister in the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and the Diocese of Sacramento serving in various faith formation programs, sacramental preparation and evangelization at different parishes and schools. Love for the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Eucharist are central to the spirituality of her Institute.
