While visiting family in Mexico City, Maria Resendiz stumbled upon a Mater Filius home and spent some time with Miriam and Jose Manuel. She knew she needed to bring this ministry back home to Cincinnati.
Maria Resendiz began a small prayer group and with the help of Henry and Betsy Jacquez, they formed a board of directors and found a location for their first home in Delhi.
The home was officially dedicated on October 24, 2020. This was home for 8 amazing and brave mothers and saw the birth of 4 wonderful little children.
In July 2021, Mater Filius was able to purchase a larger, permanent home for the ministry and began plans to relocate.
On March 5th, 2022 our new home was blessed by Archbishop Schnurr, and we opened on August 8th; the feast of St Dominic and the birthday of our founder, Miriam.
