We commemorate each of our sisters' death anniversaries with special prayer intentions for that sister. Today, we remember and honor our foundress Mother Gertrude Leupi. Her courage lead her to follow Bishop Martin Marty's invitation to service. Leaving the Swiss Alps of Maria Rickenbach convent for the windswept plains of the Dakota Territory.

Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her.
May she rest in peace. May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.
