Meet the Sisters – a music video about the Daughters of St. Paul

Sr Tracy Dugas, FSP, and friends made this for our annual dinner-dance fundraiser held last Saturday night at St. Augustine’s in Culver City. Enjoy! (Have we got talent, or what?)

Here are the lyrics:

Original Song written by Patrick Dwyer and Sr. Tracey Dugas Sung by Patrick Dwyer Background Vocals by Sr. Tracey Dugas

The Pauline Family Song

Now Sister Rose she always knows about the latest movies YO and writes reviews excessively about faith hope and charity

Jeopardy just seems to be where she lets out anxiety she may not see ‘tween you and me thats where she tests OUR charity

Uh, oh, uh oh, uh oh

And when we see Sr Hosea we can guess just what shell saya writin books that cannot wait-a, plus shes tryin to graduate

Uh, oh, uh oh, uh oh

Chorus Oh Gee cant you see that were a blessed community and God can use diversity to make this Pauline Family

Now Sister Lupes originally a California girl you see so she can go both near and far bringing Gods Word in a car She organizes book exhibits cause St. Paul would never qui-its

Uh, oh, uh oh, uh oh

Sister Madonna always wants ta tells others bout Jesus on a Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday and a when she needs to chill she bakes a cake or rolls and we’re all gonners oh, uh oh

Uh, oh, uh oh, uh oh

Chorus Oh Gee cant you see that were a blessed community and God can use diversity to make this Pauline Family aaaa eee oo, a e i o u.

Sister Tracey talks and sings about the whole discernment thing she also lives artistically but most of all she talks and talks and talks and talks and talk and wont shut up

Uh, oh, uh oh, uh oh

Chorus Oh Gee cant you see that were a blessed community and God can use diversity to make this Pauline Family aaaa eee oo, a e i o u.

Sister Maria Josephs been around the most and knows and prays for everybody here and as we know shes got a phone and not afraid to use it in a chair or on the stair in fact shell use it anywhere.

Uh, oh, uh oh, uh oh

We always know when Sister Jos around because her birds will go Makes sure that we all work together in our evangelization efforts

Uh, oh, uh oh, uh oh

So the last but not the least is Sister Jennifer and shes the new addition of the nuns at Pauline Books & Media she’s lovin’ California and can’t wait to meet all of ya so come down, come down, come on come on down

so this ends our little story but dont you be in such a hurry weve one thing left to ask of you and yep you guessed it, yes, its money

Oh gee cant you see that youre part of our family, so please support our ministry cause we need help financially

(Oh yeah we pulled that one on you! God bless!)

Zero Gravity & God’s Call: Sister Rose’s 42nd anniversary as a Daughter of St. Paul today!

 Anniversary pic

 Yes, 42 years ago, on August 5th, a Saturday and the feast of Our Lady of the Snows (now called the commemoration of St. Mary Major), I flew from San Diego via American Airlines to JFK, stayed in the terminal for a few hours because of a thunderstorm (had supper with my Uncle Richard who my mom alerted) and then onto Boston. We (Sr. Mary Thecla and another aspirant) arrived very late. If you can believe it, Mother Paula and two other sisters met us on the tarmac (before the days of jetways). The late-night drive through the Callahan tunnel terrified me. Luckily, that didn’t last.

What a gift the Pauline vocation is for me and for all members of the Pauline family of congregations founded by Bl. James Alberione.

I want to thank every person who has supported and influenced me in these years. Join me in praying that young women will continue to hear the call to follow Christ more closely in religious life – especially in the congregations of the Pauline Family.

Bless you all and thank you, Jesus.

What a ride this has been.

I just updated my blog  on the National Catholic Reporter blog with my vocation story: Zero Gravity & God’s Grace

My friend Evy Nelson sent me this image for my anniversary today; thank you, Evy! What fun!

Sr Carmen Christi, newly back from a year-long course in Pauline studies in Rome (and the new novice director for our province of the Daughters of St. Paul) lends a hand at prepping the fixtures. When you enter the convent there is always some light outdoor - or indoor work - involved!

"Pauline" is our brand name and our logo; it refers to the inspiration we take from St. Paul the Apostle, our patron saint. The image surronding the "P" is a globe, the world, signifying Paul's journeys throughout the then-known world and the presence of the Daughters of St. Paul in 52 countries to communicate the Word of God's love for all people through the media.

Our former locations in Manhattan included E. 43rd and Vanderbilt and then almost 20 years at 150 E. 52nd Street. As we all feel the pinch of these current economic times we have downsized in space but the new Center on W. 38th St. will continue to be a place of encounter with the Word that is Jesus through the media and our chapel where the Blessed Sacrament is reserved.
