    Congratulations Sister Sean Marie. It is great to see a sister doing the coin toss. Go Pack go!

  6. Thanks for all the support of Sister Sean Marie and all of us Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity during the Packer fan attention. Sister Sean Marie is still walking the frozen tundra in her heart and mind today (hand warmers and toe warmers were a true God-send to relieve remembering the COLD!) As with all of life, we look forward to another season–summer!

    Thank you for your prayers and support. For a Packer fan this experience has been like an unbelievable dream. With so many essay enteries, I never even considered that I might be a winner. It is indeed an exciting and humbling feeling to represent our community and all G-Force fans. I can’t explain the feeling of standing on Lambeau field with its immensity and acknowledging over 72,000 green and gold clad fans cheering. I have watched so many men of great character play and coach the Packers. Greatness has been when they do as a team and not as individuals. As fans we are called to the same “greatness” through our warmth, loyalty, and hospitality. Let us not stoop to “boos” for other teams and coaches. We as Packer fans are bigger than that. Sister Sean Marie
