Renewal of profession

the Inland Register

(From the May 20, 2010 edition of the Inland Register)

Three affiliates from left, Mary Ann McDonald (Spokane), Lily Watson (Vernon, B.C.) and Pam Small (Spokane) celebrated their Covenant Affiliate renewal for five years with the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration (FSPA) on April 17 at San Damiano Convent in Spokane. Marci Madary, Co-Minister of Affiliation from the FSPA Motherhouse in La Crosse, Wis., officiated at the profession ceremony. Friends and relatives, as well as other Sisters and affiliates, participated in the ceremony and the joyous reception that followed. Affiliation with FSPA offers an opportunity for women and men to live Franciscan values with FSPA members and other affiliates, providing individuals the support of a larger community, who are all seeking a closer relationship with God. Covenant affiliates seek to integrate prayer, community and ministry within a Franciscan lifestyle. Individuals continue to choose a simple lifestyle, love and service for the needy, care for creation, a sincere prayer life and an active response to peace and justice issues, both locally and globally. Local contacts are FSPA Sisters Joanne McGoldrick and Pat Gordon. For Information, call (509) 448-0299. (IR photo courtesy of the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration)
