Sister Anslem, Sister Reginette, Sister Judith, and Sister Marguerite were serving as caretakers at the Missionaries of Charity’s convent and nursing home in Aden, Yemen.
These sisters left their homes in India and Africa to serve the poor, elderly, and disabled in the war-torn country of Yemen. They worked together with volunteers at the convent’s home care center, where they served around sixty to eighty patients of all religions.
Petition to Sign at StopTheChristianGenocide.org
Dear Brother Knight, Christians in the Middle East continue to suffer, and in order to help them further, we need to do our part in convincing the U.S. Government to officially designate their persecution as genocide. Already many of our brother Knights have helped us give generously to humanitarian relief for those affected, with more than $8 million dollars raised. These funds have provided assistance in the form of food, clothing, shelter, general relief, education, religious instruction, medical care and much more.

According to Lenore, this year’s BGMH Yard Sale will run Friday October 3 to Sunday October 12.
PBVM Council 15693 collected $1,305 for Mrs. Katie Boyle to attend Catechesis training in Colorado. This is for Mrs. Boyle to assume the Catechist office of Sister Ave Maria, who will be moving on to a new assignment next school year.
Sister Ave Maria is being assigned to teach First Grade at Santa Cruz Catholic School in Buda, Texas, in the Austin area. Sister will be a local Superior in one of the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist‘s three mission convents in the Austin area. Sister reports that the Order is hoping to build a large priory just North of Austin in a town called Georgetown. They have beautiful land, and are presently trying to raise the funds to build for 100 sisters to live there, since they’re running out of room in Ann Arbor.
Sister conveys her deepest thanks to PBVM Council 15693 for providing funds to assist special training she received in the special Catechesis known as Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS), as well as our support of Religious Life and Pro-Life. Sister Ave Maria assures us of her prayers for us.
Mrs. Boyle is spending the summer attending local weekend trainings from Janette Vincent in Alverta. During the week of June 16-22, she traveled to Edwards, CO for an intensive week of training. This training was led by Jo Ann Padget who has a Masters in CGS and is on the national CGS board as well. The training has been extremely fruitful. Mrs. Boyle will be lead catechist for PBVM’s Atrium. The Atrium serves preschool through fourth grade.
Mrs. Boyle conveys her thanks for our Council support of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program at Presentation School. Council members are all most welcome to visit the Atrium
