In Phoenix, six Sisters have been teaching at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic School, and St. Mary’s Catholic High School. A high point at both schools was an all-school Eucharistic Procession as the climax of Catholic Schools Week. Other highlights include Sr. Chiara Luce’s having the privilege of preparing her 3rd grade class for their First Holy Communion and the Sacrament of Confirmation.
Sr. Peter Thomas led the St. Mary’s Choir Club and the other Sisters at St. Mary’s in a Christmas caroling outing at an Adult Day Care Center. All the Sisters have also had the opportunity to join parishioners and students in praying outside of abortion clinics and making trips to the annual March for Life (Washington, D.C.) and Walk for Life (San Francisco). Most days are spent in the classroom, helping our students learn to read or write, to work algebraic equations, or to learn when the Allies took Normandy, and, hopefully, above all, to come to know and love Jesus more deeply.
We are grateful to know so many wonderful people here in Phoenix. We keep our students, their families, and all of our benefactors in our prayers.
