I told you that my last post wasn’t goodbye! I’m writing this quick update while on my home visit because I really need your help.
These last five months have been amazing, challenging, and just all around a blast! When St. Francis started attracting followers he reportedly said, “…and the Lord gave me brothers.” Now I can truly say, “…and the Lord has given me sisters!” The TOR community has quickly become my family and I love them dearly.
By the grace of God and the trust of my superiors, I was allowed to enter with some remaining debt. However, it does need to be paid off before I enter postulancy in August 2014. So many of you have been incredibly generous and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. However, there is still about $23,000 that needs to be paid off.
I have applied for a grant from Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations but they do not make their decisions until March 15th. Please pray extra hard until then! My chances for receiving the grant will increase if I can decrease my debt before then, so anything will help!
