Everyone was on high alert! A notice was posted early last week in our Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity mailroom that our Temporary Professed Sisters would be arriving from Arizona, Hawaii and Wisconsin by Friday evening for the Initial Formation Weekend. Sarah, (now a postulant for 2 weeks) was eager to not only meet, but get to know better Sister Regina Rose, Sister Monica and Sister Pamela Catherine. Enthusiasm and joy was in abundance!
- Plenty of time for conversations both at meals, in the hallways and gathered in St. Al’s Homeroom
- Community prayer times, but also a special Eucharist just for those in Initial Formation
- Personal Prayer Time
- Recreation (some lively ‘just for fun’ games and opportunities for some good ‘brisk’ walks outside-conditions were not friendly for ice skating on Silver Lake)
- Asssumption Province of Friars Minor Father Joachim Studwell OFM presented new insights on the topic of Contemplative Prayer for a Saturday Recollection Day
- Planning for Camp Franciscan (yes, we are almost ready to post information!)
