Christmas Greetings from All our Sisters

At this beautiful season of the year, we are reminded that Christ is born, and lives, within every person.  Jesus taught us how to bring God’s peace and love into our world by following in his footsteps.   Now it is our turn to do good to everyone, as he did, spreading God’s love and healing and understanding to everyone.  It is up to us to help and heal our poor suffering world. 

This is  the spirit in which we endeavor to live among ourselves, and show to all with whom we come in contact.  But it is especially by our life of prayer that we hope to spread  God’s merciful love throughout the world.

Below is a picture of  our present community with the creche in our outside chapel.

Thank you! Thank You! Thank you!

…… for making our bazaar so successful.  All the delicious baked goods, and beautiful gifts you donated, and most of all your presence there, leave us very grateful.  Everyone enjoyed themselves and the great bargains to be had there.  May God bless you all.

Welcome to our annual Bazaar – November 17th, 2018.

Once again, we happily invite you to our annual bazaar. We appreciate your patronage, very much, as the proceeds help with the cost of heating this large building for a short while each day. Doors open from 9a.m. to 3 p.m.   If you scroll down a bit there are pictures of the good time everyone had at last years bazaar.

We will have Sister Jo’s Irish Bread, as well as your favorite chocolate chip cookies, and other tasty treats the sisters are preparing for you. We are most grateful for your donations of baked goods, needlework, and hand grafts, as well as NEW items we can sell there. (We do not have room for used items in our limited space, but we are able to sell some donated items, especially  religious items in out little lobby gift shop.)  

Please come!

Meet our newest sister!

On June 6th, the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, we received Kimberly Todd as a member of our community.  On this special day we invested her with the plain and simple habit of the Poor Clares with a rope for her waist.  Her shining white veil is a temporary one as she prepares for the day she will exchange it for a black one   – the day she makes vows for life.   Kimberly received a new name to signify the new beginning of her journey into God.  Now she is Sister Chiara Lucia of the Queenship of Mary.
