Have you received your 2015 SCN calendar?
Throughout this season of thanksgiving, our hearts seem to naturally turn toward quiet reflection in anticipation of the Advent and Christmas seasons. We are reminded over and over again of God’s blessings on our SCN Congregation, and that awareness impels us forward as we strive to answer God’s call.
In this spirit of gratitude, we present our 2015 calendar. Even though you may not have “shoes on the ground” in these ministries, you are surely a part of them. Our Sisters around the world, in their morning and evening prayer, mention our benefactors each day. Some of these Sisters may not know you by name but they recognize the generous hearts that support them wherever they are. That sense of being supported from afar gives them courage.
Around the world our Sisters have committed their lives to the Gospel of Jesus and to bringing about the reign of God that He lived and preached. We do it through the lens of our motto, “The Love of Christ Impels Us.” We do it firmly grounded in the belief that we need to both relieve the circumstances that are making people’s lives difficult — often almost unbearable — and also work steadfastly to change unjust systems that keep people oppressed.
We are grateful throughout the year for your generosity, and especially at this time of year, we pause in gratitude for all the gifts shared.
