Las Obras Mission Trip

2 Sisters just returned from a Mission Trip to Antigua, Guatemala to help
at Las Obras, a Franciscan-led orphanage / hospital / clinic.

Here Sr. M. Celine is feeding children in the orphanage.
She said she especially enjoyed being with the people at Mass.
Many of the disabled would talk all day long, but at Mass, they'd be quiet
until the songs -- that is when they sang with all their souls to God!
It was a very inspiring experience for them.

Our summer was full of activity / retreat / home visits, etc.
Here the Sisters are relaxing at a cabin in Red River for vacation
where some friends of ours allow us to borrow their cabin.

One of the highlights of the summer is helping with summer camps.
This is from the St. Therese Vocation Summer Camp in Rockford, IL.
This year we concentrated on Theology of the Body ideals.

Sorry it has been 2 months since the blog was updated!  It's been a busy summer. However, we haven't forgotten to pray for you all in the middle of our interesting activities.  God is SO good!
