Meet Ashley Vola

Hello, my name is Ashley Vola and I am 19 years old.  I am the youngest in my family and I have one older brother, Michael.  I lived with my Mom, Dad, and brother, Michael in Lake St. Louis, Missouri my whole life.  Some things I enjoy doing with family and friends include camping, hiking, playing cards, listening to music and reading.  I love being outside whenever I have the chance.  I felt very drawn to the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George through the Holy Spirit.  With the Sisters I found the deepest desires of my heart being satisfied in their peace and joy.  Mary's 'yes' of pure love helped me to give my yes to our Lord.


I am so happy that your community have so good vocations! I will pray for you! I know the FSMG from Germany. My aunt is also a FSMG.

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.
