November is a time to remember loved ones who have died. It is a time to remember their goodness and how they enriched our lives. It is a time to be grateful. (You may want to read this remembrance written by a staff member about her grandmother.)

Our Sisters will be joining you in praying for all who have died.  We would also be happy to display the names of the people you are remembering on banners outside the Chapel here at the Province Center.
