My name is Krystle Cagandahan, 26. I am from Richmond, Texas. I was born in the Philippines and spent most of my childhood in Dubai, U.A.E. before moving to Texas in 2002, where my parents and younger sisters still live. I love to draw and play basketball during my free time. I am joyful to finally be here with the Sisters. I first visited the community in 2012 and right away felt at home. The love and dedication that each Sister puts in their apostolate and their prayer life together drew me to the community. As I begin my journey, I pray that God may use me as one of His instruments to show His merciful love to His sons and daughters.
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"!
