Sr. Tracy just joined our community in Culver City from Miami just on time for her birthday!

Her birthday was last Thursday but we postponed the fiesta until last night due to our involvement as exhibitors (publishers) at the LA Religious Education Congress in Anaheim.

More about Sister Tracy soon! She is the new vocation director for our community in SoCal and will be planning some events for young women discerning a vocation to the Pauline religious life.

Sr. Frances serves Tracy's fav: carrot cake! Sr. Nancy, visiting from Boston, looks on in expectation....
