    Hoping to be able to reconnect with the Elmira Sisters as we have lost their address & email address. Thank you.

    1. Phil and Sharon, The best thing you can do to get back in contact with the Elmira Sisters would be to send your letters to Dominican Sisters of Springfield, IL 1237 W. Monroe St. Springfield, IL 62704. One of the Elmira Sisters is here now and the rest of the Sisters will be arriving over time. Thank you for reaching out and let us know if there is anything else we can do!

  3. I ask for you prayers for my ex wife Anna B. to not leave the catholic faith again. Her distraction are coming from an old guy friend named John K. who lead her further from God before. Please pray that John K. leaves her in a peaceful way and to not drag her down into partying and worldly behaviors again. Please pray for our daughter Alexis S. to be protected physically, mentally and spiritually by Our Lady and Jesus. I also ask for your prayer for a healing of my kidneys and my emotional/mental state to be healthy and protected by Our Lord and Our Lady. Please pray for me to get employed quickly with a good paying job to provide for my family. I also have a special intention that needs prayer. Thank you very much for your help. In Jesus name Amen.
