Last night was our "big" concert on Staten Island. We are told it's "the biggest Christmas event on the Island." So the Staten Island Advance covered last night's concert and treated us today to a story with photos and even a video of a complete song--the one in which the venerable Monsignor from St. Peter's (a former drummer for Desi Arnaz) worked the conga drums.

Among the comments we've heard this week:
"You sisters are touching more lives than you realize."
"They all look so happy."
"You can tell the sisters are free to be themselves."
"They sure married the right guy."
This afternoon we will offer two brief concerts to the school children at Blessed Sacrament School here on Staten Island. (Our NY community resides at Blessed Sacrament Convent; we owe the kids something for using their playground as a parking lot!) Then tomorrow we leave for an evening concert in Cleveland: our first in the Buckeye State! Sr. Diane and her sister, Sr. Susan, are in Cleveland now, doing a mission week; our concert will be the capstone for that effort. Then we move on to Philadelphia.
Thanks for the prayers (especially you, Mom!); keep them coming!
