I got this nice note today from Sr. Marguerite, l.s.p., regarding my friends from theLittle Sisters of the Poor in Queens:

Attached are two photos of our newly professed Little Sisters. Bishop Andrzej Zglejszewski presided the Mass of Profession on Saturday,July 18th. In both photos, from L to R are Sr. Mercy Marie who will be going to our home in Totowa, NJ; Sr. Rachel du Bon Pasteur who will be going to Oregon, Ohio; Sr. Mary Matthew who will be going to Palatine, Illinois and Sr. Jessica Marie who will be going to Chicago. Sr. Constance Carolyn of Mary has a nice video of the day at our website:

Wonderful news! And I like how Mary and Jesus photobombed the sisters in the shot above. :-)

Congratulations and ad multos annos!  Want to learn more about them? Check out their website here.
