In mid-January, two of the Sisters were invited to speak at and MC the annual Serra Club Vocations Dinner in Vancouver, WA. The Sisters were privileged to attend the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the vocations dinner, speak to parishioners at St. James Proto-Cathedral, and to evangelize through their travels.
Pictured to the right: Fr. Thomas Nathe, chaplain for the Serra Club in Vancouver, Sr. Mary Vianney, Bishop Eusebio Elizondo, auxiliary Bishop for the Archdiocese of Seattle, Sr. Margaret Mary, Val Park and Anh Tran, seminarians for the Archdiocese of Seattle.
Simultaneously as these Sisters were fulfilling God's will in Washington, a number of the Sisters attended the Walk for Life.
Pictured are the Sisters with our dear Chaplain, Fr. Jeffery Keyes, Fr. Frank Pavone, founder of Priest for Life, and Fr. John Boettcher, Director of Spirituality for our diocese.
Sister Seamstress discovered that it was God's will for her to exercise our charism to communicate the beauty of the faith by making a rose-colored dalmatic to match the lovely rose chasuble at the Cathedral.
We are blessed to have such a talented Sister who, responding to God's invitation, uses her gifts for the support of the Church, our priests, and the community.
