Mississippi Sisters Begin a New Year Together

We Sisters at St. Francis have been busy with many things as this new school year begins. The Friars community had determined this summer was the time to address a ceiling “face lift” in a major area of our home for which we are very grateful. So first on our list was some major removal of dust after this summer ceiling replacement project. Then it was time for getting things ready in school and the classrooms. The meeting of faculty and staff; new and old, meeting parents and students and readying the classrooms to begin the new school year. Once that was in place we were able to come together and share thoughts and plans for our year together in community.

Our lanterns then became the centerpiece for a special meal we prepared for the Friars on their Provincial Feast of the Assumption Of the Blessed Virgin Mary and as a farewell for our pastor Fr. Greg who has been reassigned.

The evening ended as we all gathered in our chapel with a special Night Prayer of Thanksgiving. The prayer was based on the writings of Bonaventure where he tells us that the Blessed Virgin Mary, to St. Francis, was Mother, Advocate, and Queen. Peace and God’s blessings to all.
