Dear Sisters!
What happy young faces!
Surely God blesses them and the entire Community!
When do the new postulants enter?
What will the new professed sisters be doing in the apostolate?
Certainly our Blessed Mother has watched over these young sisters formation!
Thanks for sharing!

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.
