Just Back from Texas!
Sister Virginia Rose Carroll, coordinator of Pittsburgh and Texas associates, recently returned from San Antonio, Texas, where she met with our Texas-area associates and delivered three months’ worth of education and enrichment in a single sitting! Our associates from the Lone Star State heard the October, November and December 2015 programs that Sister Virginia Rose had shared with our Pittsburgh-area associates during a trio of well-attended meetings at Mount Assisi Convent. Those sessions focused on the meaning behind the San Damiano Cross, a history of the congregation, and the significance of the Immaculate Conception.

Welcome Pre-Associates!
We are blessed to welcome Betty Obies, Stan and Kathy Duncan and Cheryl and Nicole Buchlmayer as pre-associates in the Pittsburgh area.
