FMM sisters of Final Vows of 15 years or less gathered with Sr. Lois Ann Pereira, Provincial, to hear input from Sr. Jo Anne Jones, RSM on navigating through midlife. They reflected on their lives thus far and were challenged to embrace the gifts they have to offer, as well as look realistically at what stops them from moving forward and giving of their best selves. Sharing in groups and personal sharing in the larger group helped everyone present in self-understanding and in better understanding and appreciation of one another. They look forward to seeing one another next year!
