God is Good and exceedingly generous in taking care of us through your goodness to us and multiplying graces beyond our hopes! We are simply overwhelmed with your outpouring of love and support! $40,000 was collected towards the purchase of 3 1/4 acres or 1000-foot strip of land on two sides of our property. This land protects our need for a certain separation and solitude in our contemplative life. At the same time, this land is a tangible reminder of your gift, goodness and friendship to us which makes our life possible. Indeed, God is Good and great is our gratitude for having been called to Kokomo in the diocese of Lafayette-in-Indiana and the heartland of America.
Although we could not be physically present at the benefit dinner, we were spiritually united with you in the Heart of God and continue to pray for you. While it is impossible for us to thank each of you who contributed personally, or even know who you are, we trust that our Heavenly Father knows, sees and will bless you.
Our Founding Sisters named our present location Mary's Acres and entrusted themselves to her motherly care and intercession. We are naming this additional strip of land Joseph's Acres since St. Joseph is constantly caring for us in our practical and material needs.
We promise our continued prayers for your parish family and beg you to pray for us that we remain faithful to demands of our vocation.
May God bless and reward you! With overwhelmed hearts and sisterly affection, your hidden but spiritually present sisters.
Mother Miriam & your Poor Clare Sisters
