Rooted in Christ


Welcome to our Marian, Franciscan, Missionary Family

whose life direction is becoming a contemplative,

compassionate  presence to those most in need.


                     LENTEN FASTING     

                     in the words of Pope Francis

  • Fast from hurting words and say kind words.

  • Fast from sadness and be filled with gratitude

  • Fast from anger and be filled with patience

  • Fast from pessimism and be filled with hope

  • Fast from worries and have trust in God.

  • Fast from complaints and contemplate simplicity

  • Fast from pressures and be prayerful.

  • Fast from bitterness and fill your hearts with joy

  • Fast from selfishness and be compassionate to others

  • Fast from grudges and be reconciled.

  • Fast from words and be silent so you can listen
