Recently Sr. Monica Faustina and Sr. Mary Karen were invited to go to the Holy Land on pilgrimage. They loved being there; the places of our faith have impacted them both so much. Here are a few of the photos from their journey. Please know that they prayed for you and your intentions during this trip, particularly at the Western Wall.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions in Fatima, the Sisters of Life and FOCUS missions organized a Marian pilgrimage through France, Spain and Portugal. We had about 35 young women with us as we prayed in Lourdes, Loyola, Avila, Segovia and Fatima. Our Blessed Mother’s presence was definitely felt among us obtaining many graces for each pilgrim and those for whom she was praying!

It was a great joy to celebrate the gift of the more than 70 of the amazing moms we have served through our Visitation and Holy Respite Missions in New York City this Mother’s Day. They came to Stamford, CT on buses from the five boroughs and beyond. They came with 150 of their beautiful children to enjoy a day in the fresh air and sunshine, made possible by over 100 of our generous Co-Workers of Life who helped with the day. There was delicious food, arts and crafts, face-painting, balloon animals, a petting zoo, and musical entertainment crowned by a time of Eucharistic Adoration and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. We ended the day with a beautiful procession to Our Lady of Fatima to thank her for the miracle of the sun on Sunday morning after a stormy Saturday.
