Come, Holy Spirit...and come He did! More than 12,000 college students from across the nation came streaming in with their university flags held high to the home of the Alamo – San Antonio, TX, for the SEEK 2017 Conference, Jan. 3-7, hosted by FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students).  Our Sisters were blessed to be present for the week as grace unfolded upon the event and on the souls present. Sr. Bethany Madonna gave a keynote address prior to an evening of adoration during which an estimated 4,000 confessions were heard by 350 priests. Sister also gave a breakout session earlier in the week, and our sisters met with hundreds of students and shared the Charism of life throughout the week.

To close the Year of Mercy, our Sisters in Toronto organized a special Source Holy Hour of Mercy at St. Peter’s Church on November 19th.  This night was special because the door of the church was designated a Door of Mercy just for the night!  During the Eucharistic Holy Hour there was music led by a local Catholic musician, Joe Zambon, confessions, a talk on Mercy, and it all ended with a Eucharistic procession around the church. The event was a powerful explosion of God’s Mercy in the city of Toronto – over 600 people attended to adore Jesus and His Mercy!
