The news last week of Father Ken Brenny’s death came as a shock to all of us. He is known and loved by many of us. He came here as presider at Mass many times. His was a very active retirement. May he be enjoying Eternal Life with the Lord. Peace and blessings on him.
Thursday morning 46 Second and Third Grade Students from St. Francis Xavier School in Sartell will come for a tour at St. Francis Convent. One of our ministries for nearly 100 years was to make the Altar Breads that were sent to 127 parishes, mostly in the St. Cloud Diocese. We show a short video to the students which shows how Altar Breads were made. They will also visit our Chapel and the Franciscan Life Office to learn a bit about St. Francis. In addition they have opportunity to visit with the Sisters.
Thursday, evening, May 21st, about 30 students will be graduating from the CEC (Continuing Education Center) program. This education program has been happening at St. Francis Center for 25 years.
Sunday is the Feast of Pentecost. May we call on the Holy Spirit for Wisdom in making decisions… big ones and little ones.
God bless you.
Sister Mary Lou
