Changes at Our Website

To those of you who come to this website to be nourished and informed, to learn about the Passionists of St. Paul of the Cross Province and our Community of Priests and Brothers, to be brought up to date on our missions and ministries, to share in our celebrations and to be part of our extended family, I have some sad news.

Sister Mary Ann Strain, C.P., who has managed our web site and social media presence over the past seven years, is transitioning back to her Community, the Congregation of the Sisters of the Cross and Passion, where she will be a welcomed member of the retreat team at Our Lady of Calvary Retreat Center in Farmington, CT.

Sr. Mary Ann has used her many gifts to bring our Passionist web presence into the 21st Century, working closely with the men of our Community to provide you with interesting stories, news and pictures from around our Province, Daily Reflections and much, much more. She has been a tremendous asset to us and will be sorely missed. I know you all join me in thanking Sister Mary Ann for her contributions. We wish her nothing but the best as she continues her journey in God’s love.

Please note that until Sister Mary Ann’s replacement is named, there will be a temporary suspension of the postings to the website. Stay tuned.

Yours in Christ,
Robert Joerger, C.P.

    You’ve done such a great job, Sister Mary Ann. I’ve been enjoying the site. God bless you on the next step.

  3. Fred Schneider says:

    Hope you will be back up and running soon. Now that the community is leaving Baltimore this is a vital lifeline for us.
    In J.X.P.,
    Fred Schneider

    Good luck to you, Sister Mary Ann. I always looked forward to the daily reflection. Your ministry brings great joy to many of us. Hopefully, you will do a presentation at Holy Family and we can meet. Jack Devlin
