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.Postulant Mary Bettag and her mother Teresa

    How wonderful that Mary could join this group when the visit was initiated by her mom. Vocations are truly a family journey!
