Hello, and welcome to Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival. We are a group of Catholic bloggers who gather weekly to share our best posts with each other. To participate, go to your blog and create a post titled Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival. In it, discuss and link to your posts for the week--whether they deal with theology, Catholic living or cute Catholic kids. I'm mostly a book blogger so my posts are generally book reviews, some Catholic, some not. Make sure that post links back here. Once you publish it, come back here and leave a link below.
We also have a yahoogroup; signing up for it will get you one weekly reminder to post. Click here to sign up.
Question of the week: Were there any religious sisters in your parish when you were growing up? Are there any now? Which community (ies)?
I'm in my early 50's. The parish in which I grew up had a school staffed by the Daughters of Charity. They pulled out quite some time ago, though that parish has managed to keep sisters of one sort or another on staff. I don't even think the ones they have now all belong to the same community. My parish doesn't have any Sisters. The school used to be staffed by the Daughters of Divine Providence but they left in the early 1980s.
Three posts this week: Getting Our Financial House in Order, a review of a restaurant review book, and a review of a book about a woman who finds herself while learning about her mother's past.
