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
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 Buffalo, New York , 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. Padua
Today, on the Feast of the Birth of Mary, our new postulants entered the postulancy of our American Province of the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George! We thank God for the gift of these vocations. Pictured above - on their very first full day in the convent - are (from left) Ashley Vola, Samantha Goodson, Miranda Edgar, Jennifer Clark and Erin Leis. Welcome, Postulants! We Sisters are grateful that you have accepted Christ's invitation to belong totally to Him in our Franciscan community, and we support you wholeheartedly with our prayers and help! If you would like to send a word of welcome and encouragement to these new postulants, we will pass the greetings along to them. Just leave them as a "comment"!
