Joy radiated from Sister M. Christine throughout the day as she renewed her vows and asked for the grace of a jubilee. Sisters throughout the country came together to celebrate the gift of Sister M. Christine's vocation and fidelity for 50 years. Bishop Thomas John Paprocki joined us on October 10, 2015 for the occasion of the Holy Mass. Many family and friends attended to pray and rejoice with Sister M. Christine. It was a beautiful day! God bless you Sister M. Christine!
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"!
