Blessed Advent to All!

Dear Friends,

During this very important Advent Season, may we all take extra time and effort to reflect on God, on His Love for us, on what He's asking of us, how He wants us to grow and to make some changes for the better . . .

Come, Lord Jesus, Come! Come into our Hearts in a new and awesome way! Open our hearts to be open to You and your life-changing and healing love. Amen.

On another note, check out some of the pictures from our recent FUN Raiser - Click Here!

God bless you all!

"Harvest of Blessings" Gala & FUN Raiser 2011

The candles wrapped up on the tables were supposed to be a gift to everyone that attended. Please, if you want a candle, please come by for one soon if you're in the vicinity.

Another awesome "dessert table" by one of our local friends. She always makes it so special!

Original Drawing by Joshua Sorenson (donated to our auctions)! Awesome job!

Cotton-eyed Joe -- We like to try it. Some Sisters are still trying to learn it . . . .

We had our FUN Raiser last Saturday night. It was awesome!

We are SO grateful for the Harvest of Blessings bestowed upon us by God and so many people. How could we ever thank you all enough for your friendship, your prayers, your generosity, and your goodness to us! We love serving you and serving with you. We love being your sisters in so many ways. Continue to pray for us as we pray for all of you!

And, don't forget to thank God for all the blessings in your life! Wow. How much God LOVES us! Do we ever thank Him enough??? Thank you, God! Please continue to bless us! We especially ask you to bless us with a deeper love for You and a deeper longing to be united with You and Your people. Amen.

[btw, If anyone has good pictures from our fun raiser, please forward them to Sr. Mary Michael! Thank you!]

School Sisters "FUN Raiser" Around the Corner!

We have been working feverishly (is that a word?) to get ready for our Annual FUN Raiser. There's still a lot left to do, but it'll get done before the doors open Saturday night at 6:00 at the St. Thomas Gym (Amarillo, TX)!

See some of the hand-made crafts above that have been prepared by the Sisters in preparation for this night.

We also have some great Auction Items (we'll try to get the website updated).

If you haven't bought your ticket yet, we will be selling them at the door until we run out! Hope to see you there!!!

Receive Love - Be Love Retreat

A picture is worth a thousand words, so we'll spare you all the details! We had a great retreat this past weekend for some who are wanting to learn more about prayer, Religious Life, and what God might be calling them to!

We have been doing our "Come and See" retreats with the theme of Receive Love - Be Love because it's difficult to hear God's call in any direction if one does not first truly know how much God LOVES them! After we are able to receive God's awesome love, then we are more able to be love to others in our vocation.

Thank you for all those who were praying for us! God is love!
