Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity Sister Rochelle Kerkhof continues to meet each day of selfless dedication to God’s people with new eyes.
Specifically, in reaching out to the Lincoln Diocese Grant Deanery youth, she is aware of the Lord working in these young hearts for good. Recently, young people were recognized for putting their faith into action. Besides class activities, students received certificates indicating their achievements during this past instructional year congratulating them on their faithfulness in attending and their enthusiastic participation through the year.
One student from St. John, Wauneta, Nebraska, received a scholarship for a Youth Conference out of state.
Another from Holy Family Parish in Palisade, Nebraska was just excited about completing scholarship work.
As we anticipate Good Shepherd Sunday, we thank God for the ways we each encourage and mentor the next generation of leaders in our midst. St. Francis and St. Clare, pray for us.
