Meet Katrina!


Hello!  I am Katrina Delaney and I am so grateful to have joined the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George as a Postulant this September.  My family is from Buffalo, New York, with all of the snow.  I have an older brother, Tim, married to Sasha and they had their first daughter Emily this past February.  My younger sister, Lizzy, has graduated college and is living with my mom.  Some of my favorite saints that journey with me and guide me to Christ are St. Anthony of Padua, St. John Bosco, St. Therese of Lisieux, and St. Dominic Savio.  Although volunteering with kids at any age group is a favorite, I also enjoy many activities like making rosaries, skiing, horseback riding, reading, and writing. I love being in nature and taking hikes. This past year I was very involved in my parish with Family Faith Formation, Youth Ministry, and many other projects.  I am really drawn to the joy and love of Christ that the Sisters share with everyone around them.  I am really appreciative and grateful for the devotions to the Eucharist and the Passion of our Lord.  May God bless you and continuously draw you closer to His Sacred Heart.

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.
