Novitiate Photo



It is good to be back on-line and to receive such encouragement!  This is our most recent photo of our current novitiate group and it is already outdated!  One postulant has become a novice since this was taken and the aspirant in the front now sports a black veil with her postulant companions.  But everyone is here (for the moment, that is--2 more are on the way)
So, from left to right, starting at the back row:
Junior Professed Sister Veronica Mary and Sister Angelique, Novices Sister Chiara Marie and Sister Laetitia.
Middle row:  Postulants Mary Elizabeth, Phoenix, Mary, Cheyenne (now Sister Faustina) and Casey.
Front and center:  Aspirant Jean, now a full fledged Postulant

Pray for all these earnest young people and for us elders who work to feed, clothe, house and educate them in the way of holiness taught us by St. Francis and St. Clare!

So lovely to see you are back in the blogging seat. Even across the pond (in the UK) your updates have been missed.

This may be asking too much.. but would your community ever consider putting up some vocation stories from these young ladies? I find them fascinating and so encouraging.

Blessings for this Lent!

I will ask them. "Stay tuned" as they used to say on television.
