Our novice Sister Marie-Immacul e (Christine Helferty) has decided not to continue her formation as a religious Sister, and has returned to her family in Canada. Please pray for Christine as she continues to seek to follow God’s will. On February 2nd, we will receive Kiana Rose from Washington State, who will begin the candidacy preparatory to the postulancy. Editor’s Comment: We are indeed grateful to God and to all the women who come to explore God’s Will at our convent here at All Saints, whether they discern they are to take final vows or not. That women would choose to follow Him in exploring His call to holiness in such a radical, counter-cultural way is awe-inspiring and fills the hearts of all of us, (but dads and moms especially) with so much gratitude and joy; you are giving our children a gift we can’t them in the same way. Thank you, Christine, thank you, Mother Maria Regina, and thank you, dear Sisters, for your zeal in making Jesus Christ the center of your lives. Your doing this, even in your youth, reminds us of our need to do the same in our specific state in life. You will all be in our prayers! AMDG!
