Franciscan Sisters enjoy Easter Hunt

The Holy Days leading up to Easter had been busy, but so full of meaning. The vigil mass at Immaculate Heart of Mary with the Baptisms and full entry into the church were very special. Easter Sunday Mass at St. Francis Church had been the crowning celebration with  Baptisms of two young boys and full Alleluias. Then it was  time to have some fun in the convent! The Sisters had a plastic egg and easter basket hunt! As they started off each Sister was “armed” with a plastic grocery bag.

One thing you must say about Sister Kathleen, she is persistent when she is on a hunt!

Sister Mary Ann found her basket early on, even before the camera came out!! She was quick!

The Sisters and Sister Elena’s mother had a good time searching for the eggs. Four of the eggs held a $1.00 dollar bill and one, the “golden egg”, held a $5.00 bill. But where to find them?

Perseverance pays off!

The Golden Egg had not been found. Ok so it is in the kitchen. Are we hot or cold? Sister Annette answers, “You have all been hot at one point.” Is it North, South, East or West? It is West. But all that is on the West wall of the kitchen is 2 doors leading out, a small pantry which has already been checked over and Sister Annette.

After a few moments of silence and eye contact between Sister Elena and Sister Annette, Sister Elena exclaims, "it is on Sister Annette!

After a few moments of silence and eye contact between Sister Elena and Sister Annette, Sister Elena exclaims, “It is on Sister Annette!”

A little pat down of Sister Annette’s pockets and  Sister Elena was the proud owner of the Golden Egg!

With the discovery of the Golden Egg it was now time to count the eggs and check over the treasures. Three eggs remained missing, but all were content with their finds. Two  of the errant eggs were quickly found and one is still at large, but being plastic we are not too concerned. The lost will be found–some day!
