The former home of the Otero family was occupied until 2015 by the Handmaids of the Precious Blood.  The cloistered religious community was founded in 1947  to pray for all priests and especially the guests at Via Coeli, a complex built next door to house Servants of the Paraclete. The Handmaids monastery was called Cor Jesu (Heart of Jesus). Click here for more history of these two religious orders.
