What Franciscan Sisters Have to Say About Michigan Catechizing

by Sister Julie Ann on August 12, 2013

For over 20 years, Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity have returned to St. John Neumann Parish, Spaulding, MI for Vocation Bible School. This year Sister Marie Voborny, Sister Maureen Bomaster and Sister Georgellen Vissers interacted with a total of 40 youth and 3 other older young people who volunteered with helpful tasks.

The children were very receptive. The people of the parish bent over backwards to accommodate our every need. Father was a great host.”

Father Michael Vichich presided at a special Year of Faith liturgy on Friday. Not only is the Eucharist the summit of our faith, but it was the high point of this week. Father encouraged the young people to remain close to Jesus and to not be afraid to talk about their relationship with God with their families.

    It is most inspiring always to be here. I have been part of this teaching outreach for 20 years invited by Sister Annette Blonde to come with her. Since it is near Iron Mountain and thus close to my own home as a child, the environment feels like home. I got to know our Franciscan Sisters through summer catechizing. I have many wonderful memories of our Sisters.
    In the beginning of Spaulding, MI ministry, we served one parish teaching in the choir loft, church basement and confessional. Today we went to 3 churches to be there at the weekend Masses to say hi to the people.
