As mother to the motherless
And best friend of the poor
So right are clothes of plainness
Grey woolens meant not for war.
But as agent of his goodness
Modern handmaid to the core
Living always by your soup spoons
And never by the sword.
Our hero of greatest val-or.

Happy Mother's Day FSGM.

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.
