Reaching out to the Church in the Northwest Territories:

tttSM Jeanine Heath, faithful caretaker of the alms collection throughout Lent at Mother of Good Counsel Convent in Chicago, IL, presented the alms collected there during the Holy Thursday Liturgy.

Each day during Lent, she counted the money and then transferred it to a safe place, after placing a little note with the amount written on it by the collection bowl so that all knew the rising total.

The sisters united with one another and prayed for SM Celeste Goulet and the needs of the Church in the Northwest Territories:

As we bring up our alms for the poor, for Sister Celeste and the Slavey Dene Indians of Tulita, Northwest Territories, Canada, we pray . .


That through our Felician ministry there, the Slavey People may continue to uphold their native traditions while welcoming God within their lives, we pray . . .
