Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Sisters Elizabeth Ann Miller, Veronica Schad, and Marsaia Kaster, conducted a Bible Vacation School in Spalding, Michigan. Twenty students arrived to join in the fun, learning, exploring, and praying.


The older students studied, worked out skits, and projects about various saints while the younger ones, including 4 and 5 year-olds used “binoculars” and went on hikes to find God-sightings. They also visited various places in the church, learned about appropriate church behavior, etc!!
On Thursday all rode the bus to DeYoung Zoo in Wallace, Michigan and saw many of God’s great creatures! Singing on the bus helped us have fun and prepare for Friday’s Mass where everyone received a little “rock” (in honor of Peter, the Rock) on which was drawn a fish with the Greek letters: IXOYE, meaning “Jesus, Christ, Son of God, Savior.” Hopefully during the year, we will hold that “Jesus Rock” and be reminded that we too are his friends and He asks us “who do you say that I am?”
Wednesday evening, after a potluck supper, Sister Marsaia led an interactive presentation on marriage and family issues from 5-8:15 pm
