August 2012 Letters to the Editor

THE PORTAL has received this letter, which we thought we ought to publish in full and with the senders details displayed. This is not our usual practice, but in this case not only did the senders request it, it is clearly right and proper so to do.

Dear All, Incredibly, it is now just over a year and a half ago

since that amazing day when the three of us stood in loſty Westminster Cathedral, standing alongside our former Bishops, with what felt like the world looking at us! Our faith and trust in our Lord Jesus Christ was overwhelmingly deep and reassuring, as we stepped out on a new adventure, not knowing quite what it would hold for us.

In September 2011, we made our move to the East

London Parish of Our Lady Immaculate and simply got on with it, so to speak, as best we could. Tis has been a testing time for all of us. I can now tell you that Sr. Carolyne Joseph has leſt us to test her vocation elsewhere. As many religious communities will tell you, when someone comes or goes, there are adjustments that have to be made and that is what Sr. Wendy Renate and I are currently doing, whilst we carry on with our respective ministries in the Parish and at Te Bishop Challoner Catholic Collegiate School.

In consultation with Monsignor Keith Newton,

we are looking at possible moves, but at present, we are not in a position to give details. However, I can say that we are looking at situations which will have the potential for us to grow, if God is willing. To encourage new and young vocations, which we feel is a cause for great excitement. For this we ask you to keep us in prayer.

As you can possibly imagine, we feel the need to

know that we are being supported and would like to set up a group for friends to offer this support, either through prayer and fellowship, or through donations. One friend is already in the process of using her giſt of craſt works to raise money for our funding, which I hope in due course we may be able to sell online, so please watch out for that. We will be keeping in touch in the future through the Portal, so please keep reading.

We are very grateful for all of you who have already

shown us enormous support and we hope will feel able to continue. Tank you.

If you feel that you are able to support us in any

way, please contact us by any of the following ways listed above.

May God bless you, with love & prayers, Sr. Wendy Renate and Sr. Jane Louise
