It is in great joy that we continue to celebrate Christ's Resurrection. These days are certainly filled with HOPE! Although Easter morning greeted us with snow flurries, the novices and postulants were filled with the graces of the Easter Triduum and enjoyed the new life of Jesus which lives in each of them. We have prayed for the intentions of all of our loved ones, those most in need of prayers and those who have no one to pray for them. May you also experience the peace which only Christ can bring. Alleluia!
Today, on the Feast of the Birth of Mary, our new postulants entered the postulancy of our American Province of the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George! We thank God for the gift of these vocations. Pictured above - on their very first full day in the convent - are (from left) Ashley Vola, Samantha Goodson, Miranda Edgar, Jennifer Clark and Erin Leis. Welcome, Postulants! We Sisters are grateful that you have accepted Christ's invitation to belong totally to Him in our Franciscan community, and we support you wholeheartedly with our prayers and help! If you would like to send a word of welcome and encouragement to these new postulants, we will pass the greetings along to them. Just leave them as a "comment"!
