Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Sister Dorothy Wagner shares on recent Community days (time spent in planning for a new year together) with Sister Anne Marie Selinsky and Sister Jan Villemure at St. Agnes Convent, Green Bay, Wisconsin.
“The heavens are telling the glory of God and all creation is shouting for joy!”
The fresh air! The blue and somewhat, sometimes gray sky! The perfect kite-flying wind! The lapping waves of Lake Michigan! The sandy beach snuggling our feet! The smiling, clapping young and old and in between!
We, Sisters of St. Agnes Convent, concluded our annual community days and began the “Season of Creation” with a trip to the Two Rivers Kite Festival. Since Sister Colleen Demero had spent the night at our convent after her nephew’s wedding at St. Agnes, she was able to join us in this joyful event.
From the cheering of the crowd and the music for synchronized kite-flying, we departed for the quiet of “West of the Lake”. In the peace of the garden we could wander around, wondering at the color, the intricacy of the flowers, and the wonderful layout of the garden. AND we could actually hear the lapping waves of Lake Michigan.
