The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity in West Point, Nebraska hosted a delicious dinner for three couples on Sunday, January 22, 2017. The dinner was an auction item which was purchased by Erv and Elaine Eisenmenger to benefit St. Mary’s parish last November. Those who attended the dinner were Erv and Elaine Eisenmenger, Harry and Doris Knobbe, Mary Kay Guenther, and Paul Timmerman.
The meal was lovingly prepared by each of the Sisters. Before the meal everyone was seated before praying a sung meal blessing. The Sisters served their guests barbecue pork ribs, twice-baked potatoes, creamed peas and carrots, spinach salad and the meal was topped off with their choice of homemade cherry or apple pie.
Sister Elizabeth Ann and Sister Joy dined with the gentlemen, while Sister Barbara and Sister Elizabeth enjoyed the meal with the ladies. At the end of their meal, Erv Eisenmenger said, “If this were a 10 star restaurant, I would give you 12 stars!” It was evident that everyone enjoyed their meal and the company.
