Awesome Retreat! Mother - Daughter - Bride - Sister

Some of us just got back from an awesome retreat in Florida! It was truly life-changing!!!
One of the themes that kept showing up was the fact that all women are called to be mothers, sisters, daughters, and a bride. Wow. God used this in a powerful way this past week in our experience, and we have a feeling that it's about to grow in more amazing ways. Read the Song of Songs to find out more!
This past weekend we also went to Lubbock to the Footsteps in Faith Conference with Scott Hahn, Brant Pitre, and Michael Barber. It was also awesome!!! They shared some great and inspiring insights. More on that later.
God bless you all!

Sr. M. Valentina -- May She Rest in Peace

Dear Friends,

Our beloved Sr. M. Valentina died in the middle of the night last night. She was a great example of a life of love. She was a mother to so many children in the Catholic Children's Home for 40 years. She gave and gave and gave.

In most recent years, she suffered from Parkinson's Disease. She has been unable to walk or barely able to talk for several years.

May she rest in peace with the Holy Trinity for all eternity!

Sr. M. Valentina, pray for us! You will be fondly remembered by us and by so many of your children!
