From our Director’s Desk

Dear Friends,

The first half of 2016 has been a very busy and productive one for the USA Province of the DHS. First we prepared fervently for the launch of our year dedicated to the first Daughter of the Holy Spirit, Marie Balavenne. Next we gathered the members of the Province to initiate our celebrations at the Spiritual Family Assembly weekend in April and now we continue commemorating Marie’s exemplary life through sundried and varied events such as the medieval concert and Taizé prayer ritual you can find described in the News and Notes section of our opening page. And on and on it is intended to continue until August of 2017. 

Your time spent reading our updated on line news speaks clearly to the fact that the Sisters, Consecrated Seculars and Associate members of our Province are all really into ‘going to the source’ (of our origins) to be refreshed and renewed. I invite each one of you to celebrate along with us, for you too are such an intrinsic part of our past, present and future.  Let me know what we can do to welcome you and to make you truly feel a part of our extended family.

Along with keeping us connected to all of you, it is also my honor to coordinate our fund and spirit raising projects that assist us in assuring on-going and continued care for all our Sisters as they progressively advance in years and move away from active ministries, especially from those that may offer any monetary remuneration. This presents us with another wonderful opportunity to stay in touch and to interlock our lives, our hopes and our vision for today and for many more tomorrows. Please take the time to read through our summer edition of the REALITY newsletter that is now on line to get a better idea of the extent to which YOU have been collaborating with us. May our generous God bless you for your consideration and kindness!

Once again I encourage you to get in touch with us to share your stories, your contacts with our Sisters and your prayer requests. I will personally respond to all your correspondence sent directly to me at . Once you have taken the time to read through the Province Advancement and the Partnership pages of our site, let me know if you have any questions, comments and/or suggestions for improving our communication with you 

Thank you again for spending some of your valuable time with us today and do know that you are ever in our hearts and prayer.

In the Spirit through whom together we transform vision into reality,
Dr. G
