Sister Seema Monippallikalayil: An Interview

God has been great! I am speechless to say how wonderfully I have been carried in God’s arms! I was an instrument of my God in places where He/She thought I would fit in. Everything was given to me as a free gift. “Thank You God for all the opportunities You gave me to follow You, though many times, I was not sure of myself, You prompted me on.”

Transitions lead to transformation

“God wants to meet the deepest desires of my heart. For me that is mostly achieved in loving God and others. I am a better person for having gone through the transitions of the last three years. I have grown in my communication skills as well as my faith. Some of these transitions were difficult but I have been transformed through it all by being more patient. May God continue to call all of us to be a light for others who are in need.”

Sister Martha Discher: An Interview

I went to Presentation Academy for my first two years of high school, and to Nazareth Academy for my last two. On graduating, I attended Nazareth College in Louisville for four years.

Inauguration of a greenhouse and educational materials distribution

April 25 marks the second year of the devastating earthquake in Nepal. People are still unconsciously anxious about the quake. Many people lost their lives, most of them are homeless and some of them are living in trauma. Reconstruction work is going on at the pace of a tortoise because of the negligence of government and although some of the villages are already constructed still the rural area of Nepal seems to be under temporary shelter.
