Greetings to all. Two months since my last post- wow! I last wrote in Lent and now Pentecost is upon us. In the joy and celebration of Easter, I have been particularly thankful for all the benefactors who helped support me with their donations and prayers in the past year. Many of you (I hope) have received a “News note from the Convent.” If not, it’s available by clicking on the link below.

I cannot express my gratitude for all those who helped plan and attend my Bingo Fundraiser last year. People continually showed me kindness as I moved across the country. This is a simple but heartfelt way of saying thank you.

News Notes from the Convent

Hello to all friends and supporters! I have exciting news to share. Many of you have been closely watching my thermometer grow higher and higher in the weeks since my bingo. I have wonderful news:

I have paid off both of my loans!!

The overwhelming support I’ve received from friends and strangers alike, combined with the generous opportunity to work three jobs, allowed me to pay off these loans much sooner than anticipated. Additionally, I have nearly all of my room and board for next year paid. ‘Thank you’ does not even begin to come close to describing my gratitude towards God and all who have- in  many ways, shapes, and forms- “supported my habit”.

As promised, I will do my best to continue to update this blog with highlights of where this journey leads me. Please check back often and feel free to email me with any questions you might have about being a Catholic sister or how I’ve journeyed on this path.

May God bless you all abundantly…

Fundraising Update

Thanks be to God! Here is an update of my fundraising efforts to date. (I’ll continue to update as I receive donations!) The first $17,000 covers two years of academic loans from graduate school. The last $2,000 covers room and board for my first year in the convent. Thank you to all who have prayerfully and financially supported me. I’ll also add that all this has happened since March 7, 2009. God is good!
