On August 14, 2015 ten of our Sisters made the next step in religious life. We are grateful for Sister M. Antonia, Sister M. Karolyn and Sister M. Eucharia who made their perpetual profession of vows. Sister Maria Christi, Sister M. Xavier, Sister M. Veritas and Sister M. Annuntiata made their first profession of vows. We welcome Sister John Mary, Sister M. Philomena and Sister Mary Joseph into the Novitiate. Our Sisters, families and friends filled St. Mary's Church in Alton, Il to witness the consecration and reception of our Sisters. Joining us in prayer and celebrating Mass for us was Bishop Thomas John Paprocki, Archbishop Joseph Naumann, Bishop Carl Kemme and about 55 priests. It was certainly a day filled with much joy and gratitude! Please keep us and these Sisters in your prayers. See more pictures from August 14th.
The Franciscan Way of the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George is the road that St. Francis followed: in the footsteps of Jesus Christ and in the spirit of our foundress, Mother M. Anselma.
