sWhat have you done since leaving ASH?
Short answer: I entered the monastery of Conception Abbey!
It was during ASH's annual silent retreat at Conception that I decided to apply. I had been thinking about religious life for a year or two, and had visited Conception before. Since entering, my time at ASH has colored my monastic experience.
What's your favorite memory from your time at A Simple House?
There are so many!
What effect has your time at ASH had on your life?
What would you say to someone considering becoming an ASH missionary?
Try it, jump in! Be not afraid. It's just one year, which can be a life-changing experience for you. You'll come to see the poor as they really are. You'll meet great people you'd never meet otherwise. You'll come to see them as your fellow human beings. Most importantly, with the eyes of Jesus, you'll come to love them in your heart. If you want to bring good news to those forgotten and marginalized and written off, then ASH is for you.

Thank you to our students from UMSL Catholic Newman Center and Rolla Catholic Newman Center for joining us last month for an alternative spring break trip in KC! Aside from getting a lot of work done, we especially enjoyed having our very own 'Chopped' competition and our first-time ever Simple House Olympics! Thanks for joining in on the madness with us! 🍽🏆🇺🇸
Thank you ladies from SPO at the University of Minnesota for visiting our community in KC during spring break!! We had so much fun working alongside you, getting to know each of you, and singing our hearts out during our karaoke session...I think we uncovered some new talent at Simple House
A special thanks to our friends from the University of Virginia, who served the homeless with us over the weekend!
