Prayer-filled Days of Holy Week
Our Good Friday Church Service was at 2 p.m. What does one say about Jesus’ suffering and death? His love for us is so great. Would that I would always be mindful of it.
Many sisters travelled to be with family members for the day. I journeyed to Kandiyohi, MN. It was a beautiful day for the 85 mile trip.
Now we will have a bunch of cloudy and rainy days ahead of us. Let us pray for protection for storms and pray for those who have suffered much from severe storms.
They say, “April showers bring May flowers.” I’m ready. The tulips on the south side of the screen house are 5 or 6 inches high.
Friday evening, May29th, at 7 p.m. the Community Chorale will have their concert in Chapel. And Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. the two Strings Orchestras will entertain us.
Saturday, May 30th, we have the Spaghetti Supper from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Go light on lunch so, you’re really hungry for spaghetti!
I have another activity Sunday noon. That is Spring Magic. This is the dinner and dance at the Little Falls Ballroom, Sponsored by St. Camillus Place, our 14-bed home for physically and mentally challenged adults. Invited to the dinner and dance are all the mentally challenged persons of the Little Falls area and their family members. We are most grateful to the many service clubs who make generous donations to help pay for this event. The residents literally dance ‘til they almost drop. They have such a good time. The Chicken Dance is one of their favorites and is played a few times in the course of the afternoon.
Monday evening, May 2nd, is the Second Annual Taste of St. Cloud. This is a fund raiser to support our Franciscan Volunteer Program. It takes place at the Coyote Moon Grille (480 55th Ave. SE, Saint Cloud). There are 16 food groups bring their delicious goodies. Again, go light on lunch and come hungry. Last year’s event was a grand success.
Take care. God bless and continue to care for all of us.
