"Veni Si Amas" (Come if You Love)


Encircling the Blessed Sacrament on the monstrance in our San Damiano Adoration Chapel are the words, "Veni Si Amas," which mean, "Come if You Love."

The same invitation, offered to those visiting our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament in our adoration chapel, is extended to young women who are seeking His Heart.

Do you desire to give Him everything?
Do you long to know the deepest desire of your heart?
You are invited to come join other young women encounter the Heart of Christ and His love for you!

You will find information here about the October 15-17 Veni Si Amas retreat scheduled in our Provincial Motherhouse in Alton, Illinois.

For more information, visit this page or email Sister M. Consolata, our vocation director.  Her email address is found on this page!

Please ask the Holy Spirit to enlighten the minds and inflame the hearts of those who are seeking to know and do His Will.

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.
