Dear Friends

For all that has been Thanks, for all that will be YES. Dag Hammarskjold

In November, we especially remember in prayer those who are no longer walking with us on our earthly pilgrimage but still accompany us in ways beyond what we can put into words. This year, Sr. Joan, the last of our sisters who came from Boston to Greenville entered into the fullness of God's peace. We are grateful for our twelves sisters that established our community in 1955 but we are also mindful that none of what we have accomplished would have been possible without the love and care of our benefactors and friends. We thank God for each of you and also pray for our deceased friends during this month.

Thank you for your prayers for us. Over the last years, you have joined us in praying for vocations. Susanna began her postulancy in July, Theresa will be joining her as a postulant during Advent and Meritt is here for a candidacy visit. We look forward to seeing what God is doing in our midst!

Your support enables us to live and share our Poor Clare life at a time that needs Franciscan Gospel values more than ever. May each of us be a YES to bringing God's love and peace into our world.


Sr. Carolyn Forgette, osc and all your Poor Clare Sisters
