    These podcasts were so engaging! I watched each one and was inspired by the sisters' joy, enthusiasm and articulation of their spiritual and apostolic life. I liked the podcasts divided into three areas each featuring two sisters. Thank you for sharing the article on 100 years of Catholic education in Guernsey County, Ohio.

    I enjoyed all the podcasts of each Sister and her life at Cambridge, Ohio by Sister Pamela Catherine description of each Sister’s ministry. From the pictures and narrations you can see the dedication of each Sister and her work as a Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity. It makes me proud to be a Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity.

    What an inspiring set of podcasts!  I thoroughly enjoyed the spotlight on the work and life of each of these Sisters seen through the eyes of Sister Pamela Catherine!  Anyone viewing these three pieces is easily pulled into the real meaning of our community's charisms and purpose.  The 100 year celebration looked like a lot of fun and sharing.  Thanks for extending our special Franiciscan blessing to all these wonderful people!

  4. Sr. Delores says:

    The podcasts are great.   Sisters, you are serving the Lord and His People well.  I sensed great peace, blessing as you go about your days of ministry.   Sr. Pamela Catherine was with me in Clarks Mills with the students and the homebound.   You witness Christ beautifully…
       Thank you for sharing the gift of your lives…

    I enjoyed each one, and especially their REALNESS! Each sister  giving witness seemed to  be so natural , and  that spoke volumes.  The misconception that all members of a community are the same, or expected to act the same, was easily put to rest with the presentations.  It is the uniqueness of each that adds to the richness of community.  Thank God for his creativity with each of us.

  6. My memories of Cambridge…a quaint, warm stop in the beautiful hills of Ohio. It is no wonder a significant number of our Sisters have called this 'home'. 

    It is a true blessing that Mark Kolter and camera crew became a recent memory to help us Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity document this faith-filled place. Priscilla Thomas’ photography also captured the personalities and current service of our Sisters.

    I have never been to Cambridge.  I know from viewing this video and listening to your comments, I would love to be there.  You know what religious life and teaching is all about and are doing both well.  Thank you for carrying on God's work so beuatifully in Ohio

    What great ministry our sisters have been doing in Cambridge for so many years!  I've never been missioned in Ohio so I really appreciated getting a glimpse of the work our sisters are doing there.   The joy and enthusiasm of the sisters who work in Cambridge are so evident in every part of the podcasts.  Thank you, sisters, for all the Good News you share with the people in your care.

    Thank you for your ministry.  I attended St. Benedict and the former G.C.C. High School in the 1970's and truly appreciate the education that I received as well as strong faith formation from the Franciscan Sisters.  May God continue to bless Cambridge, Ohio with a Catholic School.
