Dear Sisters!
Congratulations and thank you for being witnesses to Love!
Certainly His love is spreading in the various places where you serve!

What wonders are in store for you in the future, where you will be missioned, how many souls you will lead by example!

Are any of you making your final profession this year?

God bless each of you!
You are in my prayers and I beg yours in return!

Dear Sisters,

I've come across your blog through the Institute on Religious Life website, and I visit here from time to time to see what's going on with you.

Wow-twenty three YOUNG Sisters in your Junior Professed! I'm impressed!

I'm much older than all of you (mid-50s, if you must know!), and I know that you wouldn't accept anyone of my age in your community. But I am glad to see that there are young women who are willing to accept the call to consecrate their lives to Our Lord and to His Holy Church.

Best wishes to the Junior Professed!

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.
