The Foundation of our Consecrated Family began on October 12, 2005, on the Feast of Our Lady of the Pillar. On this day, by grace of God, Seventeen Brothers, among whom was the founder, Father Francesco María de la Santísima Trinidad, ordained priest in the city of Segorbe-Castellón (Spain); and four women, among whom was the founder, Mother Amada Clara de los Sagrados Corazones de Jesús y de María, gave onset to the Pilgrims of the Eucharist.
We were born to the life of the church in the Diocese of Uruguay where we were welcomed by Monsignor Raúl Scarrone, from whom we received the first approvals ad experimentun, later on as a Private Association of the faithful and finally as a Public Association of the faithful by decree of August 15 of the year 2007, simultaneously in the year 2006 in the municipality of Manaure/Cesar in Colombia we were received by the Bishop of the Diocese of Valledupar Monsignor Oscar Vélez Isaza. We are currently in the path of constituting ourselves as an Ecclesial family of consecrated life.
Given the increasing number of vocations and the responsibility of forming integrally the members of our community and in order to give a better service to the church and, not having a suitable place for that end, in the year 2007, by suggestion of Monsignor Raúl Scarrone, Father Francesco and the Mother Amada agree to send a group of three brothers, accompanied by a priest, to advance ecclesiastical studies at the University of Navarra (Spain), to which Mr. Archbishop of Pamplona entrusted the care of the parish unit of Marcalain and corresponding parishes.
In the month of May 2009, on the initiative of our founders, conversations begin with the Archbishop of Pamplona and Bishop of Tudela (Spain), Excellency and Most Reverend Monsignor Don Francisco Pérez González, in order to found a house of formation for the sisters in his diocese.
On February 17, 2010, 25 sisters arrived in Pamplona, among them was the founder, Mother Amada. Father Francesco was already in Spain, since the month of August, preparing for their arrival.
On September 4, 2010, the brothers pass from the parish unit of Marcalain to the parish unit of Acedo and fourteen more parishes. On September 21st, 10 new members of this branch came from Uruguay and Colombia, to continue their studies at the Diocesan seminar “San Miguel Archangel” in Pamplona and to receive one day the order of the Priesthood.
On March 14, 2011, the sisters settle in the city of Tudela in the convent of the MM. Capuchin Clares.
In the year 2011 the first group of lay custodians starts in the city of Buenos Aires (Argentina).
On March 15, 2016, on the initiative of Monsignor Gerardo Rojas we arrived at the Diocese of Tabasco in Mexico, taking charge of the parish of Our Lady of Carmen of Macultepec and carrying out a permanent itinerant mission in the Diocese.
