We find ourselves moving into what we hope will be days of increased freedom – relaxed pandemic protocol, warm summer breezes, less mask wearing, anticipated vacation days and more persons becoming vaccinated. Might it also offer us a time to reflect, learn and live our days more intentionally?
Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you became believers?” Acts 19:2. This gift of God’s presence calls to us, unites us and supports us. As we remain open to God’s goodness in our daily moments, we offer you ways our Sisters of Charity ministries and ministers are continuing to partner with others, reach out to meet needs and give persons reason for hope, locally and beyond. Together, we can find ways to deepen our awareness of how the Holy Spirit guides, protects, encourages, sustains, comforts and draws us toward good – God’s good. We ask, where are we being called to act this summer? Let’s take the Spirit with us! Know that the Sisters of Charity are remembering you in prayer as we journey forward together.
