Hoping to share the spirit of Francis and Clare with the next generation,  Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity welcomed 11 young women high school, college and post college ages on July 15, 2009 to serve as  Camp Franciscan leaders.

Camp Franciscan begins officially July 16-18 with  40 younger (6-8 grade) campers joining the group.  Participants will make friends from 8 states, 9 (arch)dioceses, and 16 parishes.

On Monday Camp Franciscan Leaders

  • interacted in various settings
  • toured the Motherhouse grounds
  • learned about this year’s camp patron saints of Francis, Bonaventure, Clare and Elizabeth of Hungary
  • gained helpful information that will make the camp activities run smoothly in the days ahead

Salvatorian, Franciscan and diocesan priests will be assisting with this year’s sacramental needs.

CYE (Catholic Youth Expeditions) staff will assist with bonfire activities on Tuesday evening.

Jayme Dawicki, featured musician of the month on Franciscanized World,  will perform a special Camp Franciscan concert on Wednesday evening.
