Perfect Timing: Part 3

Hello! My name is Becky Panuska, and I am the newest postulants in our Community.  I am 23 years old, and I am from Saint Michael, Minnesota.

Before coming to the convent, I finished college at Winona State University, graduating this past December 2018 with degrees in physical and health education.

I first learned about our Community when I was in elementary school.  My aunt, Sister M. Catherine, entered the Community in 2004.  However, it was not until much later that I realized the desire and draw of my heart to "look at Him Whom they have pierced" and to "make the merciful love of Christ visible" to the world.  I entered our Community on January 5, 2019.

I love to do anything active, especially if it is outside like hiking, swimming, and playing all kinds of sports.  I also enjoy reading, board games, and card games.

I am beyond ecstatic to be here and to experience the exciting adventure the Lord has in store for me!

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.
