Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity Sister Pamela Biehl serving as parish director at St. Mary, Omro, WI and St. Mary, Winneconnie, WI, alerted us to LUNA’s The Mural Project, a big initiative this year building relationships between immigrant and non-immigrant youth through a collective community mural project.  These colorful images are currently on display at St. Mary Church, Omro.

LUNA includes high school and college-aged students from Kaukauna, Appleton, Menasha, Neenah, Oshkosh, and Omro. 

Over 30 students were involved in the mural project throughout the summer and into the fall of 2011.

The mural moves from community to community and is displayed in many public locations and places of worship. 

The Catholic Church is very interested in fostering an understanding of immigrants and collaborates with people of other faiths on matters of common interest.
