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!

Conratulations to the Sisters who made perpetual profession, first profession and the two women who entered the Novitiate. May God watch over you and bless you. May you always be as happy as you were on this day.

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!

Humbly,
A grateful reader

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!

Thanks for the response to my question. There were some other sisters pictured and I just wondered who they were. Thought they might be jubiliarians.

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.
