Give Thanks to the Lord!


We are grateful for the gift of our newly Professed Sisters and new Novices who stepped across a new threshold in their religious lives Sunday, August 15, the Solemnity of the Assumption.

Meet our new Professed Sisters (top photo, from left): Sister Mariela, Sister Marysia, Sister M. Chiara and Sister Mary Benedict. Our new novies are (bottom photo, from left): Sister Karol Marie, Sister Cordia Marie and Sister M. Lucy.

Please pray that these young Sisters will be filled with all the graces they need to radiate the merciful love of Christ in all they do for Him and His Church! Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! His Mercy endures forever!

Thank you for the pictures of seven joyful women following God's call.
You are all amazing!
As you pray for us, I pray for each of you cherished Sisters for God to continue to strenghten you as you do His will and his work.
As a nearly retired female physician who understands the passion of vocation...I feel so blessed to share in a small part...yours.
Thank you,
Cindy

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   www.altonfranciscans.org/feastday   to view pictures and videos of the occasion.
