The popular “Barn Program” (1968-1984) begun by Sister Mary Charles McGough was brought back to life this summer as “Celebrating Creativity.”
“Celebrating Creativity” was held at St. Scholastica Monastery during the week of July 16 – 20. The program involved nine St. Scholastica Monastery Sisters and eight children who had completed either the fourth or the fifth grade. In addition to the art activities shown below in the photo slideshow, we sang, square danced, played “Bird Bingo,” and went on several nature exploration outings. “Celebrating Creativity” will return next summer for the week of July 22 – July 26. The program is for children who will enter the 5th or 6th grade in the Fall of 2013. For further information and to pre-register for this program, please contact Sister Dorene King, OSB at McCabe Renewal Center (218) 724-5266.
