Family, Friends, and Fun in the Summer

One of our Sisters' nephews came to have a "wienie roast" with us. He brought his wife and 6 children!!! Top above picture -- They're throwing grass on Sr. Mary Ana.
The middle picture is a "Nun Run" Group visiting us. Here they are at the Cross in Groom sitting down with the apostles at the last supper.
There's more pictures to come!

Can't believe how time is flying!

Dear Friends,
I can't believe we haven't updated this in so long. Where has the time gone???
The picture above is from the "Family Camp" that our Sisters helped with in the Diocese of Baker, Oregan. They had a wonderful experience with the families there!
3 of us just came back last weekend from a Vocation Awareness Weekend sponsored by the Serra Club. Wow. It was a great experience seeing the grace that young people are receiving today -- so many people considering the Religious Life and the priesthood (men and women particpants) and willing to learn more about it. It really was refreshing.
Vacation Bible School in Borger!!! Yea! That was fun too!
Now we have several groups coming to stay with us for different reasons -- college leadership retreat, Nun Run, etc. We'll tell more about this in the next post.
God bless you all! We are united in prayer, especially through the Holy Trinity in the Eucharist!

So Much is Going On!

Dear Friends,
So much is going on -- where to start?
  • We have 2 Sisters visiting the Motherhouse right now.
  • 2 Sisters just came back from Oregan for a Family Camp (it was awesome!) -- no pictures yet. They have to be developed first!
  • Many Sisters have been going on their home visits. Very important!
  • 2 Sisters went to the Diocese of San Angelo (where they are from) for a Vocation Bar BQ. That was good too!
  • The webmaster has been working hard preparing the new website (will hopefully be ready by the end of the month of July.....
  • Cleaning out garages, mowing, landscaping, looking at beautiful flowers.....
  • praying (see picture above)
  • Vacation Bible School next week in Borger, TX
  • and the list goes on -- that's all I can think of right now.
God bless you all!!! United in prayer!
