Catholic Sisters Receive Super Sunday Coverage

by Sister Julie Ann on February 6, 2011

By far the Super Bowl is front-page news today, but Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity are overwhelmed with our own exclusive Super Sunday Sister coverage -especially with our Postulants’ vocation stories receiving attention in the Herald Times Reporter, Manitowoc, WI.  Other weekend articles appeared in Yuma, AZ and Zanesville, OH.

Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Postulants' are featured in one of the articles found in 2011 Super Bowl Weekend coverage.

Benjamin Wideman and Sarah Koepling are responsible for prime Franciscan placement on the front cover of Manitowoc’s esteemed local newspaper for friendly Sister rivalry for the big Packer/Steeler game. But paging further in the February 6, 2011 edition, Postulants Rose Pearson, Leslie Gonia, Holly Larsen and Lindsey Lanier are featured in an article written by Ben entitled Franciscan Sisters welcome largest group of postulants since 1992 .

You’ll want to read all of these articles with us. Here are the links:

    How great for all the Sisters coverage on Consecrated Life Sunday! The interview of the Postulants was very interesting and I believe would be thought provoking for those who are discerning their future life. Nice job Leslie, Lindsey, Rose and Holly! We are blessed to have you!

    The article in the Manitowoc paper is wonderful. Reading each of the Postulants responses to the questions filled me with a sense of pride for our Community and for each of the Postulants. May God continue to guide them and fill them with His love and peace.

  3. Thanks, Sister Helena, for drawing our attention to the World Day of Prayer for Consecrated Life.

  4. Thank you Sisters and Postulants for your wonderful witness!

    We certainly did have wonderful coverage in the newspaper. It showed that religious life does not make us less human. We surely are proud of our four Postulants, and we are proud of the Green Bay Packers winning the Super Bowl. Both give us great cause to celebrate.

    I am most grateful to see the Super Sunday news on our postulants and novices' stories of their mission experience. It is important to them but rewarding for us that they can experience life in the mission field. This is more important than the Packers winning the Super Bowl.

    Super Bowl, superwomen, super activity of God in the world. Richard Rohr has a phrase: “It all belongs”. I agree. We pray as we love, we love as we live. Looks like a bountiful blessing of information and inspiration.
