Sister Jane's Nameday party!

While we ate, we wrote words describing S. Jane beginning with the letters of Thank You.

Mmmm! Widman's chocolates!

We're all so glad to have you with us, Sister Jane!

S. Jane and S. Eileen M.'s day at the Mississippi Headwaters, Itasca State Park

It's been really dry - not much water flowing!

Prayer Requests

We invite you to share your prayer requests and ensure you that the sisters will be remembering you in prayer.


Urgent request: Thank you very much for your prayers. Can you please pray for my dear father Jayantha who had a fall a few days ago and then another fall today. Thank and praise God that my father did not have a bad injury. That he will NOT have to stay in hospital. That his Brain Scan will be normal and no problems. My Mother, Mary is taking care of him with difficulty as she is also old and not too well. That my father will be healed from all pain and confusion soon. That all my father's medical tests will be normal. That my dear Mother will get the physical and mental strength and help such as caregiver to take care of my father till I come. My parents are very old living alone in Asia. I am in the US. I am their only child. Some people are trying their best to prevent me from going to my parents. Can you please urgently pray that my father will be fully healed and be blessed with good health in mind and body. That I will be able to join them urgently and take care of them. I will be a source of love and strength to them. That I will be able to fly home to my dear parents with my children urgently without a problem. Can you please pray that my parents will be blessed with good health, peace of mind, happiness and protection. My parents and I are under great mental pressure at this hard time. Thank you very much and God bless you. Amen. Praise and thank God.
