The faith sharing group has become an important aspect of the lives of our companions.  We meet faithfully every other month, from September through May. We have discussed the books, Praying With Francis andPraying With Clare.  (We went through Francis twice.)  At present, we are going through the booket, Care of Creation. We began by watching the video on creation and are now moving into the fifth chapter. We begin each meeting with prayer and faith sharing.  At least seven companions attend each meeting.  This is despite the fact that driving is a problem for some.

Being a companion has changed our lives, and we have been enriched by our relationship with the sisters and other companions.  Our companions feel only love and caring toward the sisters.
