On Saturday, June 13, we celebrated the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, a very special feast for all Felician Sisters throughout the world. Early in the morning, we found on the floor a small picture of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. None of us knew where it came from, but we knew this was a sign that Mary is with us in a special way. We had our simple ceremony of the offering our hearts to Mary and consecrated ourselves to her as all Felician Sisters did today throughout the world. 🌹🙏❤️

On Tuesday evening, June 9, our volunteers gathered in our small dining area for a time of sharing their experiences of the Art of Accompaniment in Haiti. Each of them shared what a profound experience they had personally known as they walked with our Haitian brothers and sisters. You will notice in the first picture that one of the volunteers is holding a small puppy. This is not ours; the volunteers bought the puppy for Jacque, their translator.
On Wednesday, June 10, the volunteers all returned to Michagan. They all have expressed plans to return. Sister Victoria is here with us for another 2 weeks.

For a long time already our kids have been asking us to take them to the beach for some fun. We promised our First Communion kids that they will have a special day with their group. On Sunday, June 7 after Mass we all went to the beach and met our visitors from Madonna University. The pictures will tell you they all had a great time!
How different it is now when we take our kids to Mass with us, they can receive Holy Communion with the Church. On Sunday, June 7, the day after their First Holy Communion, we all went to Mass at St. Michael’s where they were Baptized this past Easter Vigil. It was beautiful as they were in their communion clothes once again with the faith community that embraced them.
When we first arrived here in Jacmel and started to have Mass with our kids we were the only two who would receive communion. Today we noticed that during our Saturday vigil Mass for kids we had 14 people receive the Lord Jesus in His Body and Blood. We thank God for widening His Tent of our local Church.
