His Grace is Enough

Our Lady of the Angels, Pray for us!

Our Lady of the Angels, Pray for us!


Ave Maria! It is with GREAT JOY that I announce some amazing news…my debt is completely PAID OFF!

The story: After I was on the Drew Mariani show, I received an email from a woman inquiring about my debt. I responded, and she wrote back to tell me she’d like to assist me by paying off whatever debt remained after the Mike Mangione Benefit Concert.

The Benefit Concert was beautiful–Mike and the band were so generous and the music was wonderful. Rob and his crew from Spirit Juice produced the event flawlessly and the food donations from Blue Star Wine bar were lovely…

I was in touch with the donor (who desires to remain anonymous) and we arranged for a time she would visit the Mission. She came on Saturday and we spent some time visiting and had the opportunity to show her around the buildings that we live in and use to help serve the poor and house retreatants, as well as our Church which will soon (by God’s grace) be renovated!

After we saw the buildings, as she stood under the beautiful picture of Our Lady of the Angels in our hallway, she wrote out a check to pay off the rest of my debt! Such an act of kindness and generosity! Praise God!

I would not have gotten to this point without the help of countless men and women across the USA and around the world–your prayers and sacrifices have brought me to this day, and now I am free to say “yes” to God and be a Franciscan Sister!

Thank you so much for your prayers and support…and you are ALL in my daily prayers. More news to come…God bless!

Register for the OLA Benefit Concert NOW!


Ave Maria! What a blessed weekend. Yesterday marked a new milestone–18 miles! It was such a joy to push through this training run–we offered it up especially for all who’ve been praying and offering financial gifts so that I can enter religious life.

With less then 4 days until the special Mike Mangione and the Union Benefit Concert, we are getting really excited! Blue Star Wine Bar is donating appetizers for guests to enjoy that evening, so we hope everyone registers so we have enough food. We have to let the restaurant know by Tuesday, so register now! Please keep spreading the word, this will be a wonderful evening to share with friends and family. Many thanks again to Mike and his band, as well as Rob and Spirit Juice Studios for helping make this happen.

Blue Star Wine Bar is also offering a coupon–if a guest purchases dinner and a beverage with the coupon (click here), $4 will be donated to the Mission of Our Lady of the Angels. If you are in Illinois, make sure to take advantage of this great offer! Blue Star has incredible Mediterranean food and a fantastic selection of fine wines and craft beers.

Alright…you are in my prayers! Thanks for all your prayers and support…I hope to see you and all your family and friends on Thursday night!
