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: http://www.stgabrielonline.com/Pages/default.aspx
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: http://www.pauline.org/.
