Faces of Faith at Mississippi Camp Franciscan Day

by Sister Julie Ann on January 29, 2013

On January 26, 2013 Francisan Sisters of Christian Charity welcomed young women to ‘Faces of Faith’, a Camp Franciscan Day at St. Francis of Assisi, Greenwood, MS. Campers from St. Stephen Parish, Raleigh, MS, Sacred Heart Mission, Winona, MS, and St. Francis of Assisi Parish responded to an invitation to celebrate the Year of Faith by growing in their relationship with Christ and others.

Growth in friendship with other young women was fostered through creative projects, sharing fun and prayer with our Franciscan community. Sister Annette Kurey, Sister Francis Mason, Sister Mary Ann Tupy, Sister Mary Beth Kornely and Sister Kathleen Murphy planned the event locally. Sister Mary Ann Spanjers, Sister Myra Jean Sweigart, Sister Anne Turba and Sister Julie Ann Sheahan arrived from Wisconsin to offer additional Sister-support.

Are you wondering what the participants thought about the day? Watch for comments from them.
