“Whoever drinks the water I shall give will never thirst.” – John 4:14

A Note from Sr. Kathleen

The Samaritan Woman represents us. Jesus invites us to drink of the Living Water. The Lenten Season, known as the ” Springtime of the Soul” offers us an opportunity to reach out and claim His promise.
Blessings this week as you ponder the work of the Spirit.

Happy Spring season!
Sr. Kathleen
