Franciscan Sisters Welcome West Point NE Campers

Thanks to the generosity of 2 great Moms, Camp Franciscan at Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Motherhouse was blessed with young women from St. Mary Parish, West Point, NE. Campers joined 36 high school and college age campers from AZ, OH, MI and WI for days immersed with the SistersĀ  in Manitowoc, WI in prayer and a variety of activities.

Camp theme was ‘Run so as to win!” Chaperones and campers joined in the afternoon relay on one of the days of camp. Four countries were highlighted during the week: Italy, France, Africa and Mexico.

One Wednesday afternoon a mini concert was performed by the campers. Since that day was featuring the country of Africa, some South African hymns were a favorite. The music was also sung again for the Eucharistic Procession in the Evening. Following the procession in the halls of the Motherhouse, all campers and Sisters were invited to pray during all night Eucharistic Adoration. This picture was taken before the closing Mass in St. Francis Chapel.
