At 5am this morning I walked around our house enjoying the cool air and the silence that pervaded everything.  The main room of our house looked lovely – like a chapel – all set up for the vows.  Gradually other FCJs appeared and continued their part of the final preparations.  At this stage no further instructions are needed – we work as one body with one heart and one mind – helping each other in a true experience of companionship.  Tyas meanwhile – is radiant – she’s ready…This is a happy day for all  – for FCJs, for Tyas’ family and friends, for our Church and World…You all are included in our prayers of intercession…Thank you for your prayers…

    Congradulation to Sister Tyas and to her family. I love to hear that the order is still growing.

    I have writen a book about growing up in Newport, RI in which I mention Mother Joanna.. I want to send a copy to Sister Walsh who is now in Canada, but I do not have her address.

    Thank you, Clare, for keeping us informed about Tyas and her special days. I have been united in spirit with you all and able to visualize several of the scenes you mention.
    I hope this will be a day to remember for Tyas and all at Soropadan.
