Novice Visits West Point, NE Convent

Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Novice Sister Mary Teresa reflects on her recent mission experience to St. Francis Convent, West Point, NE.

What a great start the year 2017 got off to for me!  I flew out to West Point, Nebraska for twelve days of mission experience with Sisters Joy, Barbara, Elizabeth, and Elizabeth Ann.  West Point is easily the most Catholic town I have ever visited – at only 3500 people it has three daily masses, perpetual adoration, a Catholic hospital, retirement home, nursing home (almost), and pre-K through 12 school – so I got to see a little bit of everything. Novice Sister Mary Teresa West Point NEI even got to do a little bit of everything – and that included playing hockey, visiting Sister Renée (and my older brother, Charlie) in Omaha, and even attending a cattle auction – so fun!  Franciscan Sisters at West Point NE JanuaryI have to say that my favorite part of the experience was the people; everyone – the Sisters, the priests, the students, the families, the farmers at the auction were all so friendly, so generous, so hospitable, and so faith-filled.  Novice Sister Mary Teresa West Point NE hockey gameThey were a beautiful witness to me, and I am richer for having met them and had this wonderful experience!Novice Sister Mary Teresa on the benchIs God calling you?

    Since Sister Mary Teresa sees life as an adventure, she will have many throughout her life. It is always a joy to talk with her and read her insights and reflections.

  2. Sr. Mary Teresa, it was GREAT reading about your experiences in West Point, NE. For such a small town it certainly has a VARIETY & the people take pride in their town, school & churches. They are faith filled, good stewards & entrepreneurs. I treasured the ten years missioned there. God is GOOD!
