All Saints Sisters of the Poor: A letter from The Reverend Mother Christina to Associates, Fellowship members and friends - June 18, 2009
I was advised tonight that the All Saints Convent had posted a letter on its website. The site now contains "A letter from The Reverend Mother Christina to Associates, Fellowship members and friends - June 18, 2009." The letter is in PDF format but a portion is reproduced below:
[...]Please read Reverend Mother Christina's entire letter and pray for the Sisters on their journey. May God be with them!
After many months spent in discerning God's will for us in the Church, the Community believes that it is called to full communion with the Holy See.
God willing, the Archbishop of Baltimore, in the Roman Catholic Church, will receive the All Saints Sisters in a service to be held in our Chapel on 3 September, 2009.
Our community will keep these next weeks leading up to the scheduled reception of its Sisters as a period of final discernment and preparation. It will therefore not be possible for us to answer all the questions and concerns which we may receive. Of the 12 Sisters, 10 will be received as of now.
Because the service on September 3rd will be an intensely personal moment in the faith journey of each Sister, and because our space is limited (especially with construction going on), it can be shared only with family and others who have had a part in our journey. We do appreciate your love and understanding, and ask for your prayers on the day.
We are also deeply grateful for the gracious guidance and continued support offered by Archbishop O'Brien and the priests and people of his Archdiocese, and for the prayers of so many throughout the world.
In His love,
Superior of All Saints
