We thank God for the gift of Sr. Eva Regina.  We ask that you continue to keep the Sisters of the Holy Family in prayer during this time of transition.  Also, to keep Sr. Eva’s legacy alive, we urge you to get more involved, and invite others to do so as well, in your church or school community.

Congratulation to
