Today, August 28, 2008, the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity welcome Pam Peasel to the postulancy. She is the daughter of Sharon and Richard Peasel and has three brothers and one younger sister. From Grand Blanc, MI, Pam has been teaching French and History at Almont Commmunity Schools for two years and is a member of Holy Family Parish from the Diocese of Lansing.
Pam’s day began with a ferryboat ride across Lake Michigan. As a postulant with God’s help, the guidance of a directress and the support of family and many Franciscan Sisters, she embarks on a journey to become a happy, holy, and healthy consecrated woman.
On a lighter side, Pam’s arrival on the shore of Manitowoc was far from a quiet one. The Harley Davidson anniversary in Milwaukee led others to form a line of welcome that invited bikers to ‘make a noise’ as they departed the ferry. Needless to say, this coincidence of arriving with this group of ‘noise makers’ will not be forgotten by Pam or her parents.
Lastly, another unforgetable fact is that today is the feast of St. Augustine. It is a wonderful day to begin anew and to take a significant step in following the Lord’s call. Augustine’s wisdom is comforting in this quote.
God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.
Messages of prayer and support for Pam are welcome.
