"May almighty God bless you. May God look upon you with mercy and give you peace..."-Blessing of St. Clare

Dear Friends

Go without anxiety for you have a good escort for your journey... St. Clare of Assisi

On March 1, we remember the journey our sisters took from Boston in 1955. The sisters were warmly received by the city of Greenville and realized that not only was God making this possible but also the many friends and benefactors who would befriend them.

This year our Sister Kathy was given a scholarship to go on a journey to Assisi and Rome. We know the experience of this trip will be life changing for her and for all of us as we share about it in the days ahead.

But there are other journeys that we make and some of them are not spacial but interior. Lent is such a time. At the beginning of this holy season, we give some time to prepare. We also want to be open to the surprises and graces our loving God is offering us.

We are grateful for you, for the times you share with us your prayer intentions and your life's journey. This year we are especially walking with our Sister Marie who is peacefully making her way home to God and so we ask for your prayers. May you know the companionship of Jesus as you make your way to Easter!

With love and prayer,

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