Eucharistic Procession:

Sr. Lois, Sr. Margaret Therese and Sr. Mary attended the Eucharistic Congress at the Tsongas Center in Lowell, MA on Saturday June 18, 2022. We participated as volunteers. This event was held to open the Archdiocesan year of the Eucharist. There were many speakers including Cardinal Sean O Malley and at least 100 priests concelebrating. The day concluded with a Eucharistic procession through the streets of Lowell to St. Theresa’s Parish with 1,500 people in procession. It was a very inspiring and moving event attended by approx. 3,500 people.


Sister Mary O'Donovan, O.Carm. attended the GIVEN Forum in Neumann University in Philadelphia on June 19 – 25. . It is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to activating the gifts of young adult women for the Church and the world. Through leadership training, faith formation, and dedicated mentoring, GIVEN forms women for mission and for life. In attendance were 63 Religious, 53 Volunteers and 120 Young adult women.
