Hello!  My name is Miranda Edgar and I am from Hot Springs, Arkansas.  I am eighteen years old which makes me the youngest of three.  Both my brother and sister are enjoying the vocation to the married life.  During high school I played on the varsity bowling team learned how much I enjoy bowling.  I also enjoy listening to music, driving around, and spending time with others.  My favorite saint is St. Faustina because of her constant yes to God.  I was drawn to the Sisters by their joy in giving everything up for Christ.  When I left the convent for the first time I felt as if I was saying good-bye to my family.

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.
