When the Sisters at St. Francis convent Greenwood received the invitation to join with others across the nation in celebrating and praying for those dedicated to the Consecrated Life, we began to plan how we might carry this out. Sunday September 13 was already the gathering day for our Secular Franciscans who surely wanted to be a part of this event. As thoughts came together the day took shape.
The 11:00 mass was the starting point. Following mass Father led us in a Eucharistic procession to the chapel in the convent.
The convent door stood open for all to freely come and pray with the Sisters.
The Sisters hearts and eyes filled with pride and tears of joy as our Black, White and Hispanic parish members filled our Convent home.
