Between a Cup O Joy coffee house 20 year Anniversary Benefit Concert celebrating ‘music that inspires’ and a Diocese of Green Bay Jubilarian Eucharistic Liturgy recognizing the sacrificial service of religious women observing 25, 50, 60, 70 and 75 years of vowed life, the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity were involved in a joyous weekend of good news and meaningful reflection.
First, on Saturday, September 12, 2009, Cup O Joy’s special guests Joy Williams and Shawn McDonald, led an evening of song and inspiration at the Meyer Theatre in downtown Green Bay, WI. The Cup o Joy is a non-denominational Christian weekend hang out for people desiring good music and fellowship in a family environment that relies on donations and dedicated volunteers. Some of the artists highlighted on Franciscanized World have also given stage presence at the ‘Cup’ over the years. Friends of the Franciscan Sisters from UW Green Bay and UW Stevens Point along with postulants Marie Wilhelm and Kara Martin were among those who enjoyed the concert.
Sunday, September 13, 2009, jubilarians from eight congregations were honored at the 2 p.m. St. Francis Xavier Cathedral Eucharistic Celebration and reception. Bishop David Ricken of the Diocese of Green Bay presided at the Sunday Eucharist and the Green Bay Diocesan Advisory Board for Religious planned the event. A Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity music troupe were invited to play for the liturgy.
