On 1-4 August Sr. Donata and Sr. Gaudia of the Washington community of the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy will participate in the annual meeting organized by the Vietnamese community at the Marian shrine in Carthage, Missouri. It is the main prayerFUL meeting for thousands of Vietnamese living in the US, Canada, and Australia, who have been making pilgrimages to the Shrine since 1978. The Sisters will be sharing about the spiritual heritage of St. Faustina as recorded in her famous Diary, which has been available in Vietnamese for many years now. The Vietnamese faithful know the message of Mercy, but they desire to constantly deepen their knowledge of it, hence the invitation for the Sisters. The Sisters will deliver presentations, but they will also await those willing to meet them in person in a special pavillion. They will be answering personal questions of the faithful and also pray with them.
