GNSHappenings- September 2020

Written on: October 1, 2020


The GNSHAssociates continue to  meet regularly through Zoom video calls. Every October, Associates renew their annual commitment with a special prayer.  The October 10th meeting will begin with this re-commitment. Beginning in October the Zoom Associate Gatherings will be held on the second Saturday of each month from 10:30– Noon, until in-person meetings can resume.

This virtual experience has allowed those at a distance to participate and has kept many GNSHAssociates in contact with one another. Sisters are welcome to join in. Contact Sr. Barbara for how to participate.

Memorial Mass

Sister Virginia Taylor, Sister Helen Martin and Sister Marie Therese  (pictured here) all died during the COVID-19 shut down. We recently held a Memorial Mass honoring each of these remarkable women. Words of reflection and details of their lives of ministry and service can be found by clicking each of their names above.

Wedding Wishes! 

Please keep Beth Greiner and her fiancé Kevin Fisher in your prayers as their wedding day approaches. They will be married on October 17th. Congratulations Beth and Kevin and many blessings for a long and happy life to both of you!

Beth was recently hired as LPN to assist Director of Health Services, Chris Domzalski.

(Grey) Nun on Wheels

Sr. Donna Lord has the joy of riding regularly with the Big Wheels Bike Club. Her sister Pat, (on far right in the photo in a  blue jacket; Sr. Donna in white next to her) has been a member for many years, and Sr. Donna was able to join a few years ago. Sr. Donna told us, “Before joining I needed to practice doing long rides at the right speed. When I was strong enough, I began going out with the Club, and have been able to keep up nicely.” 

A nice reminder that we can keep doing what we love, no matter our age. And, social interactions keep us engaged and active, too.
