A Special Note...

Dear OLMC Parish Family,

I can't believe it has been almost 2 years since I arrived here in Arizona. I've known you for a short time but it seems as if it's been a lifetime. God blessed me with the opportunity to see our beloved Pam and Alpha depart to our Father's House. Then I was blessed again to see the miracle of life with all your new babies.  I believe God is the one who wanted to me participate in the life of this Parish, and I did deeply!!!!! With each one of you.

Since I arrived, I have not stopped experiencing how much God loves me through you. Thank you all for being so kind, gentle, patient and welcoming with me.  Your lives have been such an inspiration in my own life, and I will be eternally grateful for that.

Thank you for allowing me to be with your children at the Preschool. They are God´s smile on Earth. Thank you for allowing me to be with your elderly parishioners when I served as a  Pastoral Care Minister, they are a treasure that cannot be forgotten. Thank you for allowing me to go to the Hospital and reach out to those people who don´t have the gift of faith…

I could say many more things, but I just wanted you to know, that I will keep with me every encounter, and conversation that we have had in my heart. And I will remember your beautiful names and faces always in my prayers.

Now God is asking me to be part of another mission in Perú. I´m leaving on June 6th, so I ask you to pray for me, everyday!

I will always be your little sister and you will always be my family here in Arizona.

With so much love,

Sr. María Alejandra
