Franciscans Shout Out About Catholic Schools

Paul Keggington

January 31, 2012

Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity are looking for your help this Catholic Schools Week January 29 – February 5, 2012. We are proud of the rich heritage of Catholic Schools. Help us identify and shout out why this is an imporant ministry in our Church. Feel free to share significant Catholic Schools Week activities as well.

Of course, this year’s  theme (Catholic Schools: Faith. Academics. Service.) allows for a lot of creativity. Expect images to be galleried and events noted. Nothing is insignificant.

Here’s a starter list:

  • At the invitation of Father Joseph Yokum, pastor of St. Monica, New Boston and St. Peter in Chains, Wheelersburg, OH, Diocese of Columbus, Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Vocation Team, Sister Mary Ann Spanjers and Sister Julie Ann Sheahan, visited Notre Dame Junior High and High School students, Portsmouth, OH. We’re hoping some of the girls will join us for Camp Franciscan this summer.
  • Corrie Christianson invited Postulant Regina and Sister Elaine Turba  to visit St. John Neumann Middle School campus of the Unified Catholic Schools of Oshkosh, WI. Students learned about our Community and the process of becoming a Franciscan Sister.
