Christmas 2022

Dear Friends,

At Christmas time we stop to remember, to praise and give thanks so as to celebrate:

Christ has come among us in all the luxury and tragedy of our time, marked in the swaddling bands of the Child Jesus.

Jesus puts on flesh that he might share His Love and lead us into eternity.

Our Sister Helen Weier followed the Lord into that eternity of love on November 26, the beginning of the season of   Advent.  She was her warm and kindly self to the moment when she quietly slipped away.  We have tears in our eyes while in heaven she is rejoicing.

Our modern saints call us to look and to listen, our God is here.

Your Sisters of St. Clare
