Yesterday was the Feast of Pentecost, the birthday of the Church. And next Sunday is the Feast of The Most Holy Trinity. I just read the following pray to The Trinity and want to share it with you: “Grant to us, O Lord, this day to walk with You as Father, to trust You as Savior, to worship You as Lord; that all our works give You glory.” I guess that’s the most important agenda item in our life here on earth.
Yesterday or 11 a.m. Mass was a Memorial Liturgy to pray for our deceased Donors…and of course, to remember all our living Donors, too. We are grateful for all our donors and remember them in our daily prayers. May God bless and care for all who support our Franciscan Community.
The following are a few pictures from around campus:

the well from Clare’s Well,
new growth on the pine trees
the trees have so many beautiful flowers on them
We will have a Volunteer Appreciation Dinner Thursday evening, May 24th. We are most appreciative of the many people who give of their time and talent to assist us in so many ways. God bless you.
I just read a very sad note on our bulletin board: “Sister Annella Henger’s niece (age 48) and her husband, from Wisconsin) were in Iceland fishing. Janet fell into the river and Brian went after her to save her and both of then drown. Help was gotten, but too late to save them. Please keep them and their families in your prayers. They live in Wisconsin.” Yes, please keep them in your prayers.
Blessings on the activities of your week. Peace,
Sister Mary Lou
