Dedication of St. Andrew Convent in Sierra Vista, Arizona

Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity Sister Doris Jurgenson writes about an upcoming dedication of St. Andrew Convent, Sierra Vista, Arizona.

…Father Greg is very excited about having a convent in his parish-and Sisters, too!

We are moving the week of September 17, so we are busy packing. The convent matches the church and other buildings.

Women of the parish and the Knights of Columbus will help us move our things. Please keep us all in prayer.

The dedication of St. Andrew Convent is on Sunday, October 7, 2018. Immediately following the Mass there will be a Procession of the Blessed Sacrament from the Divine Mercy Chapel to the convent. A light lunch will follow in Madonna Hall.

We begin the postings highlighting a photo taken at Camp Franciscan 2018 in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. Here are young women who were invited through the Franciscan Sisters in Arizona to come for a June vocation camp. The campers added much spirit!
