Sisters Barbara Higgins, Mary Catherine Shambour, Mary Rochefort, Donna Schroeder, Lisa Maurer, Theresa Spinler, Ingrid Luukkonen, Elizabeth Farias, Paule Pierre Barbeau, and Father. James Datko were present to CSS students in a special way in Storm’s Den during National Vocation Awareness Week this past November.
The Sisters and Father visited with the students during lunch time, inquiring on how they were doing, how classes were going, and challenging them to think about their life’s journey to date. Had they given any thought to which vocation God was calling them – religious life, priesthood, marriage, or single life? Lively conversation was enjoyed by all, and the students enjoyed receiving the special prayer cards that the Sisters had taken along to share with them.
We’ve used the pictures without captions. We do not have the students’ names, but they were okay with us taking and using the pictures.
