On Tuesday, March 9, 2010, the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity (Sister Doris Jurgenson,OSF,  Sister Annette Kurey, OSF, Sister Joellen Kohlmann, OSF, Sister Mary Beth Prinz, OSF, Sister Andrene Flasch, OSF,  Sister Mary Ann Tupy, OSF,  Sister Sharon Paul, OSF, and Sister Monica franciscan-sister-joellen-begins-prayer-of-blessing.JPGMary De Quardo, OSF) cleared the date on their calendar and invited Central Catholic senior girls to St. Mary’s Convent, West Point, NE for a relaxed evening of food, conversation, a hands on activity and prayer.

  • Food: pizza, veggies, desert bars and a variety of ice cream treats
  • Conversation: retreats, school happenings, sports, speech contests, work and future plans for college
  • Activity: creating Sacrifice Beads or prayer beads traced back to St. Therese. Intent on perfecting her life to grow in daily in holiness, when the  ‘Little Flower’ was a child she had a small string of beads in her pocket to help count her good deeds offered to God.
  • Prayer: giving thanks and glory to God with presentation of a cross with a scripture quote as a reminder of our life long journey to Christ

Blessings are ever timely. Who is it that you are wishing special blessings on today?
