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.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

May your blessings outnumber

The shamrocks that grow

And may trouble avoid you

Even in snow …..

After turning our clocks back last week, hoping for warmer weather, but finding ourselves in a winter wonderland, we share some photos of our garden’s winter “snow joys”:
