Having God in our lives makes sense. Right? But why is it so hard to share our faith with others? Ever wonder how you can share your faith better?
In his endorsement of Fr. Wehner’s book on “The Evangelization Equation: The Who, What, and How”, His Eminence, Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York, New York had this to say:
“Evangelization – we’ve used the word so often the last forty years I’m afraid it’s become a cliché, and has lots its pizzazz. Recover it by reading Fr. Wehner’s excellent book. We’ve got to make “evangelization” new!”
Join us on Monday for a talk and book signing with Fr. James Wehner, S.T.D., Rector of Notre Dame Seminary. You wouldn’t want to miss this great opportunity to learn how to make evangelization new…by learning about “the who, what, and how” of sharing the wealth of your faith!

We hope to see you then!Read More
On the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary on October 7, we celebrated with about 10 participants of the 33 Days to Morning Glory retreat of consecration to Jesus through Mary. Our Blessed Mother has become for us more than someone we can call upon every now and then. Like the apostle John, we too have learned how to “take her into our home” (John 19:27). Developed by Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC, the practice of consecration to Jesus through Mary has developed great interest among many in recent times. The retreat builds on the Marian consecration developed by St. Louis de Montfort but looks at how Blessed John Paul II, Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, St. Maximilian Kolbe as well as St. Louis de Montefort lived out the Marian consecration in their lives. The retreat can be done individually or in groups.
October 7 was a wonderful day of rejoicing with all the retreatants. We had mass together in our little chapel and retreatants had the opportunity to offer their lives to Jesus and present a rose to our Blessed Mother. We then had a party to celebrate this great gift of Our Lady in our lives. Our Foundress, Venerable Mother Thecla used to say: “Mary makes that which is difficult easy”. As a loving mother would, Mary “cleans us up” and prepares us in our life journey to become ever more united to her Son and fulfill the will of the Father. Our Marian consecration is a wonderful way in which we can learn and experience the maternal encouragement of a Mother so tenderly given to us by Jesus. Our next 33 Days retreat will be coming in the Spring….will you join us? Call us to sign up…Read More
How can I have a more intimate relationship with God in prayer? As humans, we all have a fundamental longing for authentic love and intimacy. We want to feel cherished and to be closely connected with others. But how do we satiate this yearning in our spiritual lives, enriching our prayers and deepening our relationship with God? Where do we find an untainted intimacy in which our affectivity does not have to be abandoned, but can be expressed freely without fear?
Join us for a grace-filled Saturday morning talk and book signing with Brother Ephrem Arcement, OSB. In his book, Brother Ephrem reflects on how Saint Bernard views the Biblical allegory of spiritual marriage between God, the Bridegroom, and our soul, the Bride; shows us how to accept God’s invitation to intimacy in your contemplative prayer life; and, reveals how you can fulfill your longing for pure and enduring love.
Please call to register (free). Gathering begins at 10:00a.m. Talk and book signing from 10:30a.m. to 11:30a.m.
See you then!Read More
From October 3-6, we were on a mission: to bring Jesus to many principals, teachers and Catholic faithful of the Pensacola-Talahasse area. It was glorious…amidst the shifting tropical storm Karen. We were blessed to share God’s love with over 500 people at the Catechetical conference at St. Sylvester’s parish as well as bring our materials to many parishioners there.
One of our sisters, author and speaker, Sr. Kathryn James Hermes spoke about deepening our relationship with God by allowing Him to encounter us in our life experiences. Our personal encounter with God changes us and from that encounter flows our undeniable witness of Him whom we have experienced and touched in our lives. Check out this amazing video that she used during her presentation.
God never ceases to show us how we all thirst for His deep and abiding word! Thank you for your prayers and support in our missionary work…Read More
JClub bookfairs are one way that we reach out to school kids and their teachers. We thoroughly enjoy talking about Jesus with our little ones and watching them look for good Catholic reads from our great selection! We also talk about our vocation as religious sisters in the Church and how we are called to bring the gospel of Jesus using the media. St. Margaret Mary was certainly a wonderful experience! Let us know if you would like us to come to your school…we would love to share the joy of God’s love through our mission.Read More
