Happenings . . .

We hope the photos above will serve to bring you into the kinds of daily happenings that make up our days.

At the top you will see Sister Clare Frances with our Religious Assistant, Fr. Thomas Hartle, OFM, and Poor Clares from various monasteries in the United States, on a sponsored pilgrimage to Assisi, Perugia, and Rome, where they were enriched by the gracious hospitality of the Clares there.

Then follows a batch of pictures taken at our Annual Bazaar.  It was wall to wall people as always, and a good time was had by all. We are grateful to all who patronized us that day.

We were happy to have our Sister Mary Pius, who has been Abbess of our foundation in Kiryu, Japan, home for  R & R.

Our brother Friars from Assisi, surprised us by a quick visit with the relic of St. Pio as it toured Franciscan Houses in the States. You can see us there with our Abbess, Sister Mary Veronica holding the relic.

What we cannot put into pictures, are our continual prayers each day for our new President, our country, and our world. God lives in every human being.  We cannot value enough each person on this earth. If we each try to show God’s love to one another, no matter our color, God’s light shining through us will make a difference in our world. Let us pray for each other.
