Associate Jubilee and Signing

Associates and Sisters celebrated Associate Jubilee and Commitment Signing on Sunday, September 10, 2017.  John Shelton made a permanent commitment during the prayer service.  The day began with Mass, followed by lunch, the signing prayer service and a reception.  The prayer service included a story and reflection with apples that helped us take an inventory of our gifts and how we use them.

Pruned by God
Indianapolis Prayer Day

On October 23rd Associates and Sisters gathered to consider the parallel aspects of creating a bonsai plant and the experience of God "pruning" us throughout our lives.  Each perticipant received a small plant to report and trimmers to work with shaping their plant once it grows.  Comparisons were made to God as the master gardener and his constatn love and care for us.

The day began with a prayer service for Associate Diane Liptack as she made her permanent commitment.  Her contact person through her initial formation and through this discernment was S. Rachel West.
