When Franciscan Sisters are Documented in Yuma, AZ

by Sister Julie Ann on December 6, 2012

In September 2012 Mark Kolter, Kolter Creative Counsel, Milwaukee, WI, arranged for a crew of professional videographers, to document the daily lives of the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity at Immaculate Conception Convent, Yuma, AZ. One of the members of the crew was Priscilla Thomas, Priscilla Thomas Photography. Find here a blog posting in which Priscilla reflects on the experience. Don’t miss the photos!

In late September, I flew out to Yuma, AZ, to spend several days with the Sisters to document their daily lives and their relationships with the community, their faith, and with one another. Along with photographing the Sisters at the convent, I also joined them at grade school and the high school where they either serve as teachers or administrative staff. I have to say it does make it easier to blend in when I’m about the same height as most of the students. There are a group of students who bus in from Mexico to attend school. Read more.

    Having lived and taught in Yuma for seven years it was such a delight to see these striking photos of a place with so many good memories! Special blessings upon our Sisters serving with the people of Yuma! They are as warm as the weather!
