St. Rose Philippine Duchesne was known for her pioneering spirit and along with her religious companions they weathered many harsh winters chopping their own wood, tending to the animals and their vegtable garden.
Philippine wrote: "I never have the least doubt as to the will of God and his watchful care for the extension of his work in this country. My consolations exceed my trials...my prayer is one continuous thansksgiving for the knowledge of that much-desired will of God."
|AASH will give 10% of all on-line donations made to us |
between now and December 1st to Sprout Creek Farm
click here to donate to AASH and help feed the animals this winter!
Today, I received the Sprout Creek Farm newsletter from Margo Morris, RSCJ. The weather earlier this fall (remember the freak snow storm?) combined with the mysterious removal (theft?) of 80 thousand-pound round bales of hay have created a financial crisis for them. For those that attended the 2011 AASH Conference in Miami you may recall the delicious cheese in the hospitality / boutique room - it was from Sprout Creek Farm! Why not treat yourself and your friends to some delicious cheese this holiday season!
Please note: Between now and December 1st if you make an on-line donation to AASH we will give 10% back to Sprout Creek Farm. Please tell fellow alums to click here and donate today! Also, did you know that many companies will match your donation! Please ask your Human Resource department for the proper forms and you can double and sometimes triple your gift! All Sacred Heart alums let's show Sprout Creek we care and go on-line to donate today and buy some cheese this holiday season!
Wishing all a very blessed and happy Thanksgiving holiday!
