We were invited and hosted by FOCUS missionaries and students to be a part of ‘Encounter’ an all-day on campus event on the main square at University of Texas – Austin, hosted by the Catholic Center, for students to encounter the love and mercy of Jesus through visible witnesses. The day included food, fun, the sacraments of confession (all day!), and conversations with hundreds of students. The event concluded in the evening with Praise and Worship, Mass and Holy Hour. We also had the great privilege of speaking with the Catholic Longhorns for Life about the charism of life.

During our time in the Lone Star State, we also had the opportunity to visit students and missionaries at Texas State University in San Marcos, where we gave a talk on the mercy of God.

University of Massachusetts in Amherst hosted two of our sisters on April 1, 2016.  Our sisters gave talks on the charism of life, the feminine genius & mercy. They enjoyed having lunch on campus at the world famous eatery, spike ball and frisbee by the lake, much fellowship and prayer. As God would have it, Fr. Daly had previously arranged to have 24 hours of Mercy (24 hours of confession and Eucharistic Adoration) that same day! God is good.
