Sarah Marie says hello


           The Peace of Christ be with you all! My name is Sarah Marie Schulze, I hail from Anna, Ohio. I have an older brother named James and a younger sister named Sami. I have a wonderful father and mother named Mark and Jill. We have two dogs, Daisy and Chloe and four cats: Holly, Cheetah, Honey, and my favorite Boga (Swahili for pumpkin). Together we all make up our little Schulze clan.

            I have always loved to play any sport and do anything outdoors. Some of my favorite things to do are play basketball, go hiking and play my guitar. I also love to just hang out with friends and family, and of course I never get tired of being before Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.

            This past year I spent time living and serving in St Louis, Missouri. I was part of a group called the Vincentian Service Corps. During my time there, I lived in community with three other young women and served at an inner city Catholic school as an aid to the office staff and the teachers. During my year of service I was directed to our sisters by a certain priest named Father Jay Hughes. After encountering the overflowing joy of our Sisters, I could not help but come back on another visit. On my second visit I knew that I was home. I look forward to learning more about our way of life and deepening my love for Our Lord.  So far, this year as a postulant is off to a great start, and I am even getting used to waking up at 4:35 in the morning.

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.
