Many Graces!

On August 15th we celebrated with many Bishops and priests, family and friends with our Sisters who made their next step in religious life.  We give thanks for the gift of thirteen Sisters offering their lives forever to the Lord in perpetual profession, three Sisters making their first profession and two women being received into the Novitiate.  Much grace was poured out upon them this day!  May their hearts always remain open to all the Lord wants to give them.  You can check out more pictures from August 15th on our website and also take a picture tour of the day as well!

Dear Sisters,
Congratulations to each of you!
What happy, smiling faces! Just like a bride on her wedding day!
Where are you going to work in your apostolates?
May God's choicest blessings be yours and the entire Comunity with many more vocations!

How many women are entering in September? Did some sisters celebrate Jubilees? They were pictured but not among those making vows?
Hi Jane!
There are four women entering this September. No, some Sisters did not celebrate their Jubilees on the 15th. God bless you!

Looking Back with Gratitude

“Christ is calling you; the Church needs you; the Pope believes in you and he expects great things of you!” My life would never be the same as the words of John Paul II coursed through my mind and beat with fervor in my heart. Me? Could he possibly mean me? Like many others, I felt Pope John Paul II was speaking directly to me as I sat behind him in the nose-bleed section of the stadium in Saint Louis. Throughout my high school years after this encounter, the idea of having a possible vocation to the religious life shocked and bewildered me, but at the same time brought me such peace. As each year came and went, my relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church grew with greater depth, understanding, and love. Through daily mass, Eucharistic Adoration, the Rosary, Scripture and God’s divine intervention through his priests and religious, I soon realized that, yes, the Pope did mean me.
