Spring Daylight Saving Time is National Napping Day!

This day, the day after Daylight Savings Time starts, is National Napping Day. So go ahead and have a short nap today. I will, if I have time.

In an e-mail last week from Jennifer, I learned that the 400+ volunteers to the Franciscan Sisters donated 13,216 volunteer hours of services in 2010. That’s impressive! Thanks, volunteers. We are grateful. We pray for you every day.

Yesterday was the 13th Annual Share Sunday talent show at Our Lady of Lourdes School. I was truly impressed by the talent and poise of each of the participants. The first performer was little Isabelle, age 4, who sang “Twinkle, Twinkle Star.” She did it well.

The Share Sunday program is in memory of George Bzdok. All the proceeds go to County Food Shelves and Oasis Share-A-Meal. George and LaVerne stated the Share Sunday event. It was an afternoon of good entertainment. Profits from the day were $2,000 plus. The Food Shelf was located on our campus for MANY years.

Saturday we had the SFO Spring Retreat at St. Francis. There were 65+ Secular Franciscans in attendance. Sr. Elise was our speaker.

Today we celebrate Sister Antonette’s 90th Birthday. Thank you for all the good works you’ve done these many years.

We have Stations of the Cross in our Chapel every Friday of Lent at 3:30 p.m. Join us if you are in the area.

Thursday is the Feast of St. Patrick. Saturday we celebrate the Feast of St. Joseph, husband of Mary and patron of a happy death. May these saints be an inspiration to you.

Let us keep in prayer the people of Japan who suffer so greatly because of earthquake and tsunami. And pray, too, for those who assist in rescue and cleanup efforts.

God bless you.

Sister Mary Lou
