They are at Assumption Parish in Jacksonville, FL.

And at Ave Maria in Naples.

In Jacksonville, they would somtimes have "Sisterbucks" where they would have some of us over to have coffee and just hang out. They were pretty awesome!

The sisters here in North America (Canada, Arkansas, Wisconsin, and Illinois) speak both English and Polish... though my friend is their first American-born vocation. ^_^ Edited by shortnun

Nope, not here in the USA. A little of the Polish has rubbed off on my friend, though. She may end up going to study in Poland during part of her formation... so who knows. But no, the sisters communicate quiet well in English.

Do these sisters have a website? Where are they located? Does anyone know why some of the tunics are grey and some are brown?

It could just be the color fading from the sun or something, I'm not sure.
Why are the sisters hands wrapped up...I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the ceremony but what is the symbolism/meaning behind it?

Have you been to visit/met them before? I just met them the other week, on their way back from visiting Benedictine College in Kansas. They're so fun! :topsy:

They are a hoot! I met them in February at the Here I Am Lord Conference in St. Charles. They invited me to come visit sometime. They are not far from where I go to school.
Also, sorry if I confused anyone with the Polish... But when I was with them at the conference, they had found some Sisters from Slovakia and a Polish priest, so a large portion of my time I sat in awe of their jovial-ness and love and joy as I could not understand what they were saying to each other! It was amazing. :) Amazing, amazing Sisters. One of the Sisters shared her vocation story in a small group that weekend and it was so simple and so beautiful.
I will try to visit them sometime soon to say hello and perhaps catch up a little. I have Sister Margaret's business card. :D:
