Pauline Cooperators Speak/Writing Together

Pauline Cooperators Speak
Bringing to life the teachings of St. Paul through their stories, struggles and triumphs, joys, and their ponderings

Hello dear Sr. Margaret Charles, Rae, and all you wonderful Pauline Cooperators:

God be praised!
It is with joy to let you know that Rae Stabosz has agreed to do final editing of this book - our future book! Never mind the rules that I included in my original email (too rigid and can be confusing! :-)

Sr. Margaret Charles Kerry would like this to be an on-going project. So, what do you say? Any comments or additions?

What to write about/contribute:
-Faith journey
-Life-changing testimony
-How has Scripture and/or the Eucharist being central to the life of a Pauline Family member strengthened your faith
-How Prayer and Adoration with the Sisters helped in your faith journey
-Spiritual growth through monthly meetings
-Specific incident wherein you were triumphant because of what you learned as a Pauline Cooperator
-Experiences in attending a Pauline Cooperator Conference
-Teaching of Fr. James Alberione and/or Mother Thecla that influenced you the most
-Ministry or ways through which you share the Gospel of Jesus Christ
-Influence of St. Paul in your life of service
-Sisters who are moderators of Pauline Cooperators’ groups, please write about the teachings of St. Paul, or your experiences as a moderator
-The struggles and joys of being a Pauline Cooperator

Determine what to write about. Write as if you are speaking to a child or a good and trusted friend. Do not worry about tenses or syntax. Pray before writing. Write from the heart.

Maximum of 1,500 words (equivalent to 3 pages of 8 x 11); 1 page is OK.

Would anyone like to do graphics of the cover of this book?

Deadline of submission: January 15, 2009. Please spread the word and encourage the PCs who are attending 18th Annual Cooperator Convention on October 31 to November 2, 2008 to contribute. Thank you :-).
Send your written work, complete name, email address and phone number to Easter Almuena at If you are not submitting your own prayer or poem, please include name of author/writer.
Optional: Include 5 things that you want your readers to know about you.
Proceeds go to the Pauline Cooperators’ Fund and causes.
Please send questions or comments to me, or post them here. God bless us all abundantly!

Thanks, Easter. There are so many ways to contribute to this project.

Amen.
