Mary's Month

May is Mary's Month.

Lets look at some of the thousands of pictures, statues and shrines from around the globe.
What better way to do this than to ask our sisters what their favourite representation of Our Lady is and why.

As we journey through this month lets ask our Mother Mary to accompany us, to guide and protect us and lead us to her Son.

Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with you.Blessed are you among woman and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus. Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.

Sr Amata's Vocation Story

This is Sr Amata
She is one of our Portress'.
Lets hear what she has to tell us.

Since I became a religious sister I have learnt the value of humility, which is recognising the truth about myself. I am journeying with Jesus, I am in His loving presence, I try to please Him, and I trust that He will take care of me. 
All that I do throughout the day, when done for the glory of God, is life giving to the world. It doesn’t matter what task I am doing, whether I am performing the simple tasks of cleaning, washing up or whether I am praising God in the chapel. 

As I journey with God I carry others with me in spirit and I can share in their suffering as well as their joys, through prayer. Truth has to be born and nurtured on many levels and this involves a suffering which is life giving. I am called to live a life of praise and thanksgiving to the Lord.

My motto of life: Jesus - our Life.

Sr Pia's vocation story

Life is a learning process and Community life has taught me a lot about giving and receiving. Jesus sometimes asks us to step into the background and allow another sister to shine. When one creates and shares something with another it may not end up as one envisaged it, but in entering into someone else’s ideas and encouraging them, both of you grow. Jesus must be the centre and this is a way of giving all for Jesus.

 My motto of life is: All for Jesus
