By now we all hoped and prayed the pandemic would have come to an end. Yet, we find ourselves with more boosters, more testing, more masks, and uncertainty that there will be a true end date to our adjusted ways of life.
Fortunately for the Sisters in the United States convents, we have been safe and well cared for—not just by our healthcare workers, but also by you- our loyal friends and family of supporters. In the past, we prepared a St. Joseph’s Appeal at this time of year. This was our annual request for a particular project for the Sisters or for a special need the Sisters required for their care in retirement. However, with the overwhelming generosity you have shown the Sisters during the years of the pandemic, we do not have a major project on our calendar.
Instead of a request for a physical need, our appeal this year is one for prayer. This year with Easter falling in mid-April, we have a unique opportunity. We ask that you join us for a few moments each week for the duration of Lent and Easter Sunday. This allows us to concentrate our prayers and meditations on one area of faith during the Lenten season and celebrate the resurrection!
Thank you again for your love and support of all our Sisters. We are so grateful to have you here with us in spirit. Please continue to send us your intentions. It is our honor to be here to share the love you have for those you honor and remember, to be a part of the milestones you celebrate, and to be here to share God’s love with those that are in the greatest need of strength from Him.
Yours in Prayer,
Sister M. William McGovern, FDC
