Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity welcomed 56 campers for Camp Franciscan Mary Handmaid, June 13-16, 2011. Arriving from 5 states, 7 Catholic (arch)dioceses and 20 parishes, guests experience life with the Sisters while making new friends in the Franciscan Motherhouse atmosphere in Manitowoc, WI.
Over 45 Franciscan Sisters were involved in camp sessions and in roles of hospitality while the entire community supports this vocation outreach with prayer. This year Father James Dunfee , pastor of St. Agnes Parish, Mingo Junction, OH returns as camp chaplain. Additional priests are assisting with the Sacrament of Reconciliation and other individuals are helping to make the theme Mary Handmaid come alive.
