A Letter from Sister Karolyn Grace

Sister Karolyn Grace of the Immaculate Conception, known by many parishioners in her childhood as Megan Wertner, has written an open letter expressing her gratitude for the support of our prayers and asking for their continuance as she and her sisters relocate to a fully established monastery in Kokomo, Indiana. She will continue in her contemplative life as a Poor Clare but will have a time of formation as she enters the life of this community.

Please see her full letter here:
