  1. Gathering for this photo was a great culmination to our working together. What a vibrant group of women all passionate about Living the Gospel and Serving God’s people in the contemporary society and in our church! Please pray for us as we return to the ministry of the coming year.

    This has been a truly blessed experience with inspiring Sisters of my Franciscan Community! The Holy Spirit continues to guide us and bring us closer to Jesus through our Franciscan life together! As Father Hilary said so well in our Mass of Thanksgiving, our response to “now what” is to be one of Praise to God!
