Letter from Sr. Charlene for May 1, 2012
Dear Families and Friends,
I’ve heard from several readers who have expressed appreciation for the monthly biography of a saint and for the related reflection questions. I am confident that you will appreciate the courage and Christ-like love of the saint featured this month. St. Damien of Molokai was the Belgian-born missionary called to serve the poorest of the poor (lepers) in Hawaii. We celebrate his life in a special way on May 10th each year.
In this newsletter you will read about our trip to Sacramento this past weekend to see the Women and Spirit exhibit; receive an invitation to a workshop on May 5 incorporating art and spirituality; and learn about our blogging Sisters.
For the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon, May is a special month as we honor Mary as our model and inspiration for Christian living. May Mary our Mother, guide and inspire you.
Sr. Charlene Herinckx
