 L to R: Sister Rose Therese, Bishop Jenky, and Sister M. Veronica


Wow, I can actually say that now… 2 & 1/2 years sure do go by quickly.

At this point I have been missioned to work in the CT Scan department of our largest hospital, OSF St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria, IL.  What a great priviledge and joy to work side by side with our employees and physicians. 

Well, as the months go by I’ll pop back in and give an update. May God bless & hold close all who read this.

In Christ and St. Francis, Sister M. Veronica, OSF

      Thanks so much Annie. You and your family are in our prayers.
      Hope you’ll be able to come out for the bazaar. I think Sister Ildefonsa and Sister Canisia would love to see you.

    Oh Sisters! In meeting you recently, I can truly see the radiance of Christ shining through your lives. How blessed I feel to have met such wonderful examples of Christ’s merciful love! Please pray for me as I fill out my application papers. I will continue to pray for you and the work that you do! And, I will continue to pray that God leads many young women to your convent seeking vocations, to share in your beautiful life!
    God Bless!
