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

A message from our Abbess…

February 2015

Dear Friends,

February is the shortest month but it often seems long because it is the hump we need to get over before winter ends and we begin to see the signs of Spring that we long for - even here in the south. We have a star magnolia tree at LaForesta that is one of our harbingers of Spring we begin to keep a close eye on in February waiting in hope for those first blooms.

As always, you are bearers of hope for us every day by your faith in and generous support of our life of prayer. We ask you to pray with us for vocations during this Year of Consecrated Life.

I also ask your prayers as I begin a three year term of service to my sisters as abbess. It is a privilege and a responsibility I don’t take lightly.

Thank you for your support of our ministry of prayer. May you and your family experience God's blessings in many ways.

With love,

Sr. Carolyn Forgette, OSC
And all your grateful Poor Clare Sisters
