The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity are among the crowd at Lifest 2008, five days of Christian music, speakers, activities, comedy, fun, food and faith at Sunnyview Fairgrounds, Oshkosh, WI, July 9-13. This is the tenth anniversary of this event that draws Christian music enthusiasts from across the nation.
Find the Franciscan Sisters in the Marketplace, enjoying conversation with those taking a break from other events, and handing out free Holy Ghost/Enkindle (song of the month on the Franciscanized World page) download pass-it-on cards and miniature Sister-made flip flops as simple give-away gifts. Friday evening the Sisters will be joining the Diocese of Green Bay for a camp cookout on the Lifest grounds. The Sisters promised to bring Holy Family Convent bakery favorites (chocolate chip cookies and rice krispie squares) to share. The final event for the Sisters will be the Eucharistic Liturgy celebrated at the fairgrounds on Sunday morning.
