Behind the Scenes

The past few days I have witnessed three men place their gifts at the service of the Lord.  I was privileged to journey with them during their stay at St. Francis Convent.  They are the crew for producing the Light of Love film with Imagine Sisters.

It is humbling as religious to receive such support and encouragement for our way of life.  If you have not heard, Imagine Sisters with Lighthouse Catholic Media and Lumen Vere are producing a film about religious women.  The crew of three men are traveling to religious communities now and the goal for release is September 8th.  You can read more about the film and their needs.

What a witness they were to me of joy, humility and hard work!  They are using their gifts from the Father for His glory.  Please keep them and this project in your prayers!

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   to view pictures and videos of the occasion.
