Welcome Back, Sr. Amanda
We had the joy of welcoming back Sr. Amanda Marie to our Home. Sr. Amanda was her in 2021 for a few months during her pre-postulancy. Now a novice, Sister has been staying at St. Mary’s Home in Chicago. Every year during her novitiate, she (along with every novice) goes to one of our Homes for an ‘Apostolate Experience’. Sr. Amanda has been living, working and praying side by side with our Residents and Little Sisters in Chicago.
Sr. Amanda joined us for Mass and then went to each of our dining rooms to greet the Residents and staff. Even though she looked a bit different with her habit, once Sr. Amanda showed them her beautiful smile, many Residents joyfully exclaimed, “I remember you! Welcome back.”
The day flew by too quickly. We once again said our goodbyes and promised our prayers for Sr. Amanda, as she prepared to go back to the Novitiate in Queens, NY.
May God bless Sr. Amanda and all the women contemplating a vocation with the Little Sisters of the Poor.
