Dear Families and Friends,

Happy, glorious Easter greetings!  What a wonderful time of year!  It always feels like a fresh start!

We just finished SSMO Heritage Month. We want to express our appreciation to the students and faculties at the schools as well as the staff at Maryville who helped us to recall that we are all standing on the shoulders of those who have gone before. This campus has become a strong community which must cause great joy among the Sisters who first lived out the core values of the Congregation in their ministry.

This year, the Sisters were pleased to offer a Gala Sign-Up Party which will include Sunday dinner, a tour of the lower floors of the Motherhouse, and an opportunity to see the inside of the dome and learn a bit of Community history.

Space is limited and this event is nearly sold out. If you would like to join us, please contact Caroline Fogarty by email or by calling 503-718-6486 to see if spaces are still available. The date is Sunday, April 22, and the party will begin at 11:00 a.m.

Easter blessings,

Sr. Charlene
