Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. What happened to summer? (It’s 56 degrees here right now at 10:15, as I write this.) I guess summer is supposed to be coming back by the weekend.
I went past the Community Gardens the other day. They are looking good.
The potatoes, corn, beans, peas are growing well. The recent rains and heat have helped a lot. And we all know that rain is so much better than water from a hose.
Last week we had 29 Girl Campers here from Tuesday morning until 6 p.m. on Thursday. What a nice group of girls. There were many activities planned to keep them busy. On Wednesday the girls joined the Sisters for our 11 a.m. Mass. The young lady who did the first reading did a superb job, as did the young lady who read the intercessions. They show good leadership qualities for their local parishes. They pitched their tents in Assisi Park—south of the Motherhouse. A couple showers didn’t seem to dampen any spirits. Nineteen Sisters assisted with the camp in various ways. I helped with registration. The west entrance was a very busy place when the girls arrived. It was good. God bless all the girls who came and all those who helped with the camp.
Then on Friday we had the funeral for Sister Clara Schroedl, age 76. She is the last member of her family to die. We were so pleased to see half the Chapel filled with her nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.
Have a safe 4th of July. I am planning on going to the West Union 2 p.m. parade, on the 4th. All are welcome to come for the parade. After the parade there is a pot luck meal in the city park. Let us pray for good weather for the parade and meal.
God bless you.
