My dearest brothers and sisters,

I am overwhelmed with joy and gratitude to share with you that I have been accepted to join our Lady of Fatima Convent Secondary School, Gurgaon.

This school had a humble beginning on 8th April 1957 with seven pupils in a rented cottage. On 30th Nov. 1957, the school was shifted to the new building. The Nursery school that began with 7 children on 8th April, 1957 became a Higher Secondary School on May 1, 1971 with over 900 pupils. Since then it has grown by leaps and bounds.

Our Aims and Vision
Aims and Objectives

The primary aim of Our Lady of Fatima Convent Sec. School is to realize the Education Vision of the Institute by imparting integeral formation (religious, moral, social, cultural and physical) based on principles of Christian faith, to the members of the Christian Community.

It also imparts integral education (spritual, mental, moral, cultural and physical) to all other students admitted to this institution irrespective of caste or race.

The Institute of the Clarist Franciscan Sisters of the Most Blessed Sacrament, founded by Mother Seraphina Farolfi in 1898, is a religious society committed to :

the education of the young with a preferential option for the poor, the marginalised or the under-privileged in the slum/interior rural areas.
the care of the orphaned/ destitute children and lonely old women.
I first became involved with pro-life ministry in 2009 when I joined my campus' Students for Life group. In the years that followed, it became clear that the Lord was calling me to give my life in a special way to protect those who are vulnerable, especially little lives that are in danger of being aborted and their families.

After attending a retreat with the Sisters last May, the Lord began to make it clear to me that His plans were so much more than I ever dreamed. He began to whisper His desire into my heart that I would be totally His - that I would lay my life down so others might live. He has showered me with grace, mercy, and affirmation as I have continued to take steps towards joining the Sisters of Life. The journey has been so beautiful so far, and it has only just begun!

All of that being said, now that I have officially been accepted, there is just one minor detail left to be taken care of - student loans! In order to enter in September, I must be debt-free. This means that I have just over 7 weeks to come up with approxiamately $16,000 to pay off my loans. I rest in the Lord's promise: "The one who calls you is faithful, and he will also accomplish it." 1 Thessalonians 5:24

There are three ways you can help accomplish the Lord's will in my life:

1. Join me with confidence in prayer that the Lord will provide everything necessary for me to join on September 20.

2. Give what you are willing and able. No amount is too small. I will forever be grateful to everyone who helps make my vocation a reality. In return, I offer you the gift of prayer. I will be starting a book of prayer intentions that I will bring with me to the convent. Please share with me your prayer intentions so I can bring them before our Lord.

3. Share this page with anyone and everyone you think might want to contribute.Please help me spread the word!

I know the Lord will bless you abundantly for your generosity. Thank you, friends.

Peace in Christ,
Hafsa Ahsan
