Virginia is for lovers...of Sister Marie!

We are back from Virginia after an amazing visit to present the life and mission of Sister Marie. We were invited by the Parishes of Queen of Apostles in Alexandria, St. John the Beloved in McLean, and Holy Trinity in Gainesville. Each Parish welcomed us with open arms and embraced Sister Marie in such a beautiful and powerful way. Sister Marie now has many new devotees and beloved friends willing to work for her cause. It is our prayer that God blesses each new friend abundantly and that this blessing will magnify and propel the cause for Sister Marie.

Virginia is in the Shenendoah valley. Shenendoah means "daughter of the stars." We think this is perfect name for the place where Erin and I and our devoted Virginian friend and organizer of all things Sister Marie in the Shenendoah valley, Diane, have gathered new ambassadors for Sister Marie. Perhaps we should just move the "s" from star[s] and place it on daughter[s] and think ourselves "daughters of the star"...of course I refer to the one Daughter of Charity, A Guiding Star, as Father Carl Schulte, CM the author of the book by the same name, likes to call Sister Marie!

We continue to beg for your prayers and donations at this time as bills exceed funds. Please say a prayer and please be generous with your donation. Additionally, please consider collecting donations in your area. Email us at sr.marie@yahoo.com for more information about how you can help. Sister Marie needs your help for this timely and critical mission for peace. Thank you!
