Young Women Open the Door to Franciscan Convent Christmas Tour

by Sister Julie Ann on January 8, 2014

On January 7, 2014, while a winter freeze was happening outside, young women from St. Francis of Assisi Parish walked into our warm Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Motherhouse (Holy Family Convent) for a Christmas Season Open House.

Arriving by 4:30 p.m., guests were ushered to St. Mary Chapel for Evening Prayer. This largest of our chapels in its liturgical splendor had its own unique yuletide appearance. The tour continued to other festively decorated chapels and hallways. Treated to many Incarnational settings including some cherished traditional pieces from over the years and other more contemporary decorations, young women joined the Sisters for dinner and conversation. Time stood still (freeze!)

    I was once in that lovely house, which is filled with love, caring, and the presence of God. Blessings to all in that house for the new year.
