September 2010 Month of the Angels

+JMJ Religious Education Sessions have begun for the children on Saturdays at 11 AM-12:30 PM and 3-4:30 PM as well as the high school youth Confirmation sessions twice a month on Sundays, Year I at 10 AM-12Noon and Year II at 1-3PM. Please pray that the children, youth and their families will be encountered by Jesus, experience the love of the Blessed Trinity and live a continual conversion of heart!

Sister Mary Joseph together with a lay Handmaid in the state of Washington continue to research for the theological presentation of our Charism and Spirituality that we will present to our Co-Adjutor Archbishop Jose Gomez, once he assumes leadership of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles in early 2011.

We are posting new photos of the construction of our convent now that evident progress is being made both on the interior and the exterior this month! Our move in date was suppose to have been the middle of this month, but now it will be in mid-October, providing everything continues to move along. We began construction February 2nd, so this is our 7th month of living in others’ home. Jeff and Maxine Mesinoff generously offered their mobile home when they moved to Palm Springs for new employment, so we have been commuting across town to the Mission parish. We have adapted our daily life by praying all of our prayers in the local parishes, but we do miss our little chapel with our Lord’s Presence under the roof, which is the hardest inconvenience we have had to endure. However, the Lord is ever faithful bestowing His graces of perseverence, patience and peace. This is the cross we are asked to carry and offer thanksgiving to our Lord for His graces.

We wish to share with all who have been praying with us for founding growth…we have someone from the state of Washington asking to begin the process of discernment to join our community! We are just in the beginning stages with this 21 year old, so please continue to pray that Gods’ Holy Will may be done in her life and in ours.

Let us remember the Angels and ask for their intercession during this month as we approach the Feasts of the Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Rafael and October 2nd Feast of our Guardian Angels.
