July 14 and 15 in New Jersey

Last week 25 young women visited our Boston Novitiate House and headquarters of Pauline books and Media. Their week ended with the solemn yet joyful ceremony of the perpetual religious profession of sister Marlyn. the event took place in sister's home parish in East Boston, Massachusetts. the Mass was celebrated in English and Spanish. Sister whose parents hail from Costa Rica grew up in a bi-lingual environment.
We send our congratulations to Sister Maryln and our prayers as she soon begins her new assignment as one of our Pauline editors.
Farther down the East Coast we in Philadelphia will be visiting a parish in New Jersey this coming weekend: St. Gabriel's Church in Marlboro, New Jersey. Once again we will offer a display of books and media for all ages at all the weekend Mass. See the church's website at:
Many of our Sisters are enjoying our once-a-year spiritual retreat at our St. Thecla Retreat House. There are retreat houses throughout the USA and Canada which offer weekend, or even one-day retreats. A retreat is a great opportunity to pray and listen to what God may be telling us. A good book is also a way to do an "at home" retreat. Find one for yourself at our website:

Due to unforeseen events, our visit to Our Lady of Hope Church which is listed on our calenar for July 8 is postponed tentatively until the end of September.

Fourth of July

We are blessed to be in the City of Brotherly Love, where the USA was born 236 years ago. courageous men risked their lives by signing the Declaration of Independence. We were at Old St. Joseph church in downtown Philadelphia this past weekend--ony a block away from the major historic sights. St. Joseph's itself is historic: the first Roman Catholic Church in Philadelphia. It is impressive to ponder that the church has existed in that alley since 1733--before the Declaration of Indepence. Thanks to William Penn's foresight and toleration, St. Joseph's remained open when some protested that the "Romish Chapel" was not of the  "established" religion (at that time the Church of England.) We are grateful to the early Jesuits who founded the parish as well as the current Jesuits who staff St. Joseph's now.
Here are some photos of our display this weekend:
