Pray first

"Let your prayer drive your evangelization."

Come Holy Spirit!  He is the source of all conversion and evangelizing.  He is the one who touches the hearts of His people through us.  This is why it is important to be rooted in Him in prayer before going out to evangelize.

The mission of the Church is to evangelize.  We are living in an important time in history as we focus on the new evangelization.  First, we need to spend time with the Lord in prayer, interceding for those we will encounter before we even meet them. 

It may sound simple - to pray - yet how often do we forget?  Today, go to Him bringing the people He will bring into your path.  Then be attentive and respond with courage to the promptings of the Holy Spirit.  Watch His work through you today!

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   to view pictures and videos of the occasion.
