Parish Exhibit and Feast of the Divine Master

October 24 –
October 25:
Sr. Emi and Jackie departed for Christ the King Parish in Springfield, Illinois on Saturday afternoon to set up the book exhibit for the vigil mass. We received a warm welcome from the priests and even had one parish member help us transport the books to the exhibit area! Sylwia and Emily joined us for the exhibit at the Sunday masses, where we shared many of our children’s books as well as books on spirituality with the parishioners. We also had several opportunities to share information about our congregation and mission.

On Sunday, we celebrated the Feast of the Divine Master which is a principle devotion of our Pauline family. ( After our exhibit, we visited the State Capitol building in Springfield and took several photos at the historical site. When we returned to St. Louis, we had ice cream at Ted Drewes with the other sisters. We concluded our feast day celebrations on Monday with a community holy hour of adoration. Thereafter, we enjoyed an international dinner prepared by Emily, Sylwia and Jackie: American baked potatoes, Polish soup and pork stew prepared with Kenyan spices. What a festive weekend!

May Jesus our Master, our Way, our Truth and our Life, teach us His way of truth and holiness!
