Dear Sister Marge and all our Sisters in the Province, In the name of our dear Mother Cecilia and of our community, we want to thank you for all the love you have shown M. Cecilia, especially on this occasion of her 115th Birthday, expressed in so many cards, good wishes, prayers, and gifts, all of which are greatly appreciated. The 25th was a great day of thanksgiving for her life, totally given to the Lord during her 92 years of religious profession.
Recently the 13th Street Community had the joy of hosting Sr. Yudith Pereira, RJM, for a long weekend.  Yudith, from the Province of Spain, is currently the Assistant Executive Director of the organization Solidarity with South Sudan.  She was in the USA to meet with Sr. Joan Mumaw, who directs the not-for-profit US organization, Friends in Solidarity, that helps to support this work, an inter-Congregational enterprise that sponsors five communities presently ministering in South Sudan.  Altogether, more than 260 Congregations are supporting this project.
