Now is the hour and this is the day! Today at 2 p.m. Tomas Ochoa will be part of the Naturalization Ceremony in St. Paul, MN, for persons becoming citizens of the United States of America. It is indeed a happy day for him. Tomas has been in the States for 19 years. He has faithfully worked for the Franciscan Sisters these many years. He has been studying with Sister Cleone and other Sisters during this time to learn English and learn the materials necessary to pass
his test to become a citizen. He passed his test in January. Now is the time to celebrate his accomplishment with him. Several of our Sisters will be there to witness his achievement. Congratulationis, Tomas. We are proud of you.
Last Sunday we celebrated the 90th birthday of Sister Marie Theis. On March 13th we will celebrate Sister Virginia Dingman’s 90th. Those Sisters who have celebrated 90+ years have seen a LOT of changes during those years. God bless you for helping us with the events of this changing time.
Pax et Bonum.
Sister Mary Lou
