Benedictine Friends Across Campus held their annual brunch on Sunday, April 17. The Sisters from St. Scholastica Monastery and their student friends who are graduating from The College of St. Scholastica celebrated their times together and said their farewells.
Student friends with Sisters (back row standing, left to right) Lisa Maurer (2nd), Mary Josephine Torborg (4th), Mary Rochefort (far end) and (sitting) Claudia Riehl (1st), Melanie Gagne (3rd), and Mary Rae Higgins.
The smiles on the faces of Sister Mary Josephine and her friends tell of a year of wonderful times together.
Sister Melanie and her friend, Rosa, share a special bond that began four years ago and will, undoubtedly, continue far into the future.
Benedictine Friends is a program offered through Mission Integration and Campus Ministry which seeks to connect Sisters and students on a personal basis. Over the years many lasting friendships have been formed.
