Our next lecture: Prayer in the Bible

Please join us Thursday, February 25, for a lecture by three of the seminarians from St. Patrick's in Menlo Park. Carlo Perez, Alexander Quiros-Castillo, and Tom Martin are the authors of the new book, Prayer in the Bible. The book discusses prayer and encounter with God as portrayed in scripture.

We're pleased to welcome these local authors (and future priests!), so plea

Until then, here is some biographical information on our speakers:

He has been a California Province Jesuit and served as an aide to the Mayor of San Francisco. He is a second year Theology student at St. Patrick’s Seminary.

Two more titles for your Lenten journey

This week Lent begins, an opportune time to renew our spiritual lives and deepen our Christian commitment. To that end we have two great recommendations: Lenten Grace, a collection of short reflections by our sisters, Daughters of St. Paul, on the daily lenten readings for Mass. This small treasure trove provides insight from women who have given their lives over to God's Word. It's a beautiful and hope-filled look at how scripture provides light and strength for our life's journey.

The second title can really be called a lenten family handbook: The Lent-Easter Book, Living and Celebrating our Catholic Customs and Traditions. Time and again this book has been a lifesaver for someone coming in to our Center who needed direction in making Lent meaningful for kids. From crafts to stories to a home-made prayer book on the stations of the cross, this handy spiral-bound volume is an essential component in family or classroom planning.

Please stop in soon to take a look at these titles and others! And have a blessed Lent!

Our newest professed Sister!

We are pleased to inform you that this past week one of our novices, Sr. Neville, made her first profession as a Daughter of St. Paul!

Many of you probably remember that Neville was with us for several weeks some time ago. She joined our community for a brief period of apostolic experience. We enjoyed her short stay with us and are thrilled to welcome her now as a temporary professed sister.

Neville is originally from Cameroon, and her mother and several other family members were on hand for the celebration at our novitiate house in Boston. With her profession of the vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, she has taken on the new name of Sr. Neville Christine. Please rejoice with us in this newest gift to the Church and to our religious family!

Blessings and prayers for a consecrated life of joyful service, Sr. Neville Christine!
