    I’m sure I can speak for others in saying I am sorry to have missed the Talent show because of our Open House at Chiara Convent. It’s always fun to enjoy the talents of our Sisters, musically and humorously!!

    How Fun! I hope you all are doing well, and are enjoying the many different talents and blessings God has bestowed on each one!
    In Mary’s Immaculate Heart-

  3. I’m sure the Lord is using your own many gifts and talents for the good of others. Enjoy your summer, Kelsey.

    It isn’t every year that I am able to attend the Summer Talent Show. This year I was home and I enjoyed it immensely. Thank you, Sisters for sharing your gifts with all of us. You make me all the prouder to be a Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity because I know you also share your gifts every day in your daily ministries.

  5. Yes, the show goes on. The Motherhouse is emptying out of our Sisters ministering in other places. Indeed, our acts of charity evoke many faces of emotion in the hearts of an even broader audience of good and holy souls throughout the country.

    I didn’t realize how much talent we had among our Sister’s. It was fun to enjoy. Am looking forward to next year.
