Welcome Jennifer!

Last, but certainly not least!  You can now meet Jennifer!  It has been delayed due to some trouble in being able to upload Jennifer's picture.  Thanks for your patience.

Hello, my name is Jennifer Clark. I'm 28 years old and I have one brother, Daniel, who is 19 years old. I was first introduced to this community by my pastor, Fr. Dan Gartland. I visited a few times, getting to know the Sisters. I was really drawn by the Sisters' joy and the community's charism "to make visible the merciful Love of Christ." Some of my favorite saints are St. John Bosco, St. Elizabeth of Hungary, and St. Francis of Assisi.

Dear Jennifer,
You are not the last, nor the least. You are a Franciscan to be!
Your smile will disarm any of those who doubt simplicity and humility!
Please remember me in your prayers as I remember you and your vocation in mine!
a grateful reader

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.
