Enjoy Sister M. Benedicta's Vocation Video Part III. When you give everything to the Lord, He cannot be outdone in generosity. Listen to the blessings Sister M. Benedicta has received in surrendering all to HIM.

Dear Sister M Benedicta!
Your humility shines through this gift you shared with me!
Thank you for your simple openness!
Thank you for putting God in tangible terms of realization for me!
Hopefully more of your Sisters will share their witness as well and not hide under bushel baskets!
This takes my breath apt on Pentecost as the Spirit moves!
a grateful reader

Really inspiring set of Youtube clips.
I noticed in at least one; there were women singing. Was that the Franciscan Sisters and if so do you produce any CD's or your own?

Days of Abundance!

August 2 and 3 brought great joy to our community as we welcomed three new novices, celebrated the first profession of four sisters and the final profession of six sisters.  While the number of people gathered in St. Mary's Church was certainly smaller than we would have liked, we were blessed by thousands who joined the livestreams to join us in giving thanks to God for the gifts of our sisters.   Visit   to view pictures and videos of the occasion.
