The St. Cloud Diocese hosts a mission event for ninth graders called, “Just Five Days” from St. Mary’s Catholic School in Owatonna. They toured the campus and worked in the gardens on June 3-5. Sister Anne Furnstahl explained how her ministry of 40 years making and now distributing communion hosts has changed through the years. It looks like this is the first year of an ongoing relationship! Sister Ruth Lentner had them help in the garden one day and Bev Gerads put them to work in the Peace Garden on their last day. The highlight of their three days with us was meeting and talking with some of the sisters at lunch in the Dining Room. They were in awe of all the stories and could not believe that women almost 100 were still working and so vibrant!
