It is with great joy that I announce that a second member of our parish is seeking to serve God through a vocation in a religious order. Hannah Houser is seeking to serve God as a Sister of Saint Francis of Oldenburg. As you may already know, Josh Richter is a simply professed brother in the Order of Friars Minor. What a blessing to have these two young people choosing the religious life to serve God.

Hannah spoke at last Sunday’s Mass about her need to resolve her student debt in order to clear the path for her religious life with the Sisters of Saint Francis of Oldenburg. The Sister of Saint Francis of Oldenburg and Hannah are partnering with the Labouré Society to help remove this obstacle. Since 2003, this 501(c)(3) organization has helped deliver hundreds of men and women into religious formation who otherwise would have been turned away due to educational loans.

Please consider helping Hannah achieve her calling to serve God in religious life by donating to the Labouré Society. Here is a link to learn more about this organization and how to donate.

Don’t hesitate to reach out to Hannah with any questions you might have about this program  at:
