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!

Happenings . . .

We hope the photos below will serve to bring you into happenings that make up our days.

At the top, Sister Clare Frances is 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. They were wondeefully 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, for many years, 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.
