Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity were delighted to host the first ever vocation pilgrimage for the 6-8 girls of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School, Sheboygan, WI. Teresa Bettag, mother of Postulant Mary Bettag, initiated the day trip.
Visitors were welcomed at Silver Lake College of the Holy Family Music Performance and Education Building. Guests next participated in a Eucharistic Liturgy in the school chapel, enjoyed refreshments, and walked to the Motherhouse exiting near the residence wing. More touring followed at Holy Family Convent.
Postulant Mary shared her own call to be a Franciscan Sister, and responded to any student questions. After lunch, a scavenger hunt introduced visitors to important landmarks outside our home within walking distance. S’mores in the green hut near the lake, browsing time in the convent craft room, were other afternoon activities.
The visit ended with finding ‘St. Francis’ in each of our St. Mary Chapel Stations of the Cross designed by our own Sister Victoria Masil. For more pictures, click here.
