Two Thousand and More Candles on the Cake

Two Thousand and more candles on the cake.
It's time to celebrate.

The birth of Jesus the
Babe in the manger,
With Mary and Joseph his father.

No King nor Ruler was told.
But Angeles sang to Shepherd's
Who were watching their herds.

Glory to God in the Highest
The Savior is born!
Make haste to Bethlehem this morn!

Lowly did they find Him!
In a manger did He lay!
Where Ox and Ass did stay.

Joseph stood by protecting!
While Mary His mother beamed with joy
Adoring her baby boy.

For our Savior is knocking on the door!

I'm coming! I'm  coming!
Prepare for my coming!
For my Birthday is coming on

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.
