The Answer Is...........

Sister M. Stephanie prepares for a hole in one!
So... you may have seen the poll on the right side of this blog... with the question: "When is the Mother of Good Counsel Home's Golf Tournament?"

If you guessed May 17, with 6 people, you are WRONG.

If you guessed August 31, which is tomorrow, with 13 others, YOU WIN!!!

Well, we aren't sure what you would win, except the satisfaction of getting the answer right!!

Please pray that the weather cooperates and that all of the friends of the Mother of Good Counsel Home - who are participating - will be blessed for their support of our Sisters' mission of service to the elderly in our care!

Go, Sister M. Stephanie and Sisters, go!!

Indeed! Go Sisters!
How many of the Sisters participate?
Do all the mission houses have their own tournaments?
What a wonderful way to share Franciscan joy!
Thanks for sharing!

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.
