**********************************

Father, may our human family
not become separated from you
by building barriers of race or color,
of religion or class. Inspire us to recognize
that we are all made
in your image and likeness,
so that we may grow in appreciation of all people,
and encourage each other
to grow in pride in who we are and who we are called to be.
May we recognize your Son in our midst, and live truly as sisters and brothers.
Amen.

  1. Mother Aude arrived at Florissant on March 21. She told them of the prosperous condition of her convent at Grand Coteau, where there were 27 boarders.  Florissant, however, had spiritual riches such as a First Communion ceremony for children of the parish. On Easter Sunday Mother Aude, who spent the day at the convent, regaled at both breakfast and dinner on the supplies received from the Ursulines.

There was an unexpected and triumphant joy for Philippine when, in the late afternoon of April 6, Father Van Quickenborne arrived at the convent and presented to her two little Native American girls as the first pupils of the “Female Indian Seminary” she had dreamed of opening.  Housed in a little building by themselves and cared for by Mother O’Connor, these little girls became Philippine’s delight and a shining jewel in the crown of Mother O’Connor.
