Easter: faith, hope and charity

Sister Anne Arthur Klinker, a 70-year Jubilarian, reflects on Easter, “My twin sister and I were taught that at baptism we are given the seeds of faith, hope and charity, which then needed to be lovingly nurtured so as to grow and develop. We felt truly blessed on this score as our parents were strong and deep on these gifts. Is faith not caught as well as taught, by word and example? Faith has to do with one’s relationship with God. Faith is believing things that one would ordinarily or normally have trouble accepting.”

Honoring Earth every day

The School Sisters of Notre Dame (SSND) continue to show that the choices we make daily can help repair the tear in the fabric of life caused by a consumer mentality that replaces rather than fixes, that considers Earth to be a resource for our use no matter the consequences, and that pays no attention to waste disposal. Sister Maxine Pohlman shares a few examples of what SSND have implemented throughout the Central Pacific Province in an effort to protect the Earth. Sister Maxine states, “As we move into the future, caring for creation will continue to be an essential aspect of our lives as SSND not only on Earth Day, April 22, but every day of the year.”
