Hello! My name is Catie Kneemiller and I am overjoyed to have entered with the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George! I am 25 years old and from St. Charles, Missouri. My parents and younger brother still live in St. Charles. In my free time, I enjoy reading, playing sports (non-competitively), and taking walks. I was drawn to our community because of the joy of the Sisters and their charism to make Christ’s merciful love visible. I was also drawn to the fact that their charism is lived out in many different apostolates. Please pray for me and know that I am praying for you as well!
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"!
