Sister Alice Marie Schmersal is a member of the Sisters of Divine Providence and the Pastoral Associate for St. Ann's Catholic Church in Manchester, Kentucky. St. Ann's is a mission parish for the Diocese of Lexington and the only Catholic presence in Clay County. St. Ann's is supported by a membership of approximately 25 families. Sr. Alice Marie puts her prayer to paper using water colors and photographs. She creates blank note cards or greeting cards with quotes of scriptures. Some of the out reach ministries of Sister Alice Marie and the parishioners of St. Ann's is a county wide Vacation Bible School, a rummage store for those who cannot afford necessary items, and a welcoming community for those who are searching for Christ. Sister Alice Marie and parishioners visit the nursing home, works with the Clay County Ministerial Association and the Heart and Soul pregnancy center and provides a Catholic presence at the Federal Correctional Institution at Manchester. Your support with the purchase of her cards will allow Sr. Alice Marie and parishioners to minister to and with the people of Manchester and Clay County in Eastern Kentucky.
Please know that we also hold you and your intentions in continued prayers asking our Compassionate God to bless you and your loved ones.
