The answer to the question in the poll in which 40 people have participated up until this moment is: September 8!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Congratulations, Winners! The prize is the joy of knowing you are included in our Sisters' prayers. To those who did not win, you are also being prayed for by our Franciscan Sisters.
And above is the photo of our postulants - Elizabeth and Sarah - who entered our community that morning.
Elizabeth - or "Liz" - comes to us from Hastings, Nebraska, where our Sisters have a convent and teach at St. Michael's Grade School and St. Cecilia Middle and High School. Sarah is from La Crosse, Wisconsin, where she attended Aquinas High School and got to know our Sisters because they teach there and also staff the Mater Redemptoris House of Formation for women ages 17-25.
Amazingly, before entering our community, both graduated from colleges with degrees in Political Science. Hmmmm.... wonder what God has in store?

We thank God for the gift of our postulants and all our Sisters! Please pray that God will send many more young women to embrace our way of life!
