CSA at LCWR AZ 2019

CSA Sisters Rhea Emmer, Vicki Wuolle, Susan Seeby, Cyndi Nienhaus, Jean Steffes and Mary Christine Fellerhoff were among the 663 LCWR members gathered in Scottsdale, Arizona, to call upon the president to end all divisive and polarizing rhetoric. LCWR sent  a letter to President Trump during its annual 2019 conference on August 14. The letter states in part, "We implore you to never use language that disrespects, dehumanizes, or demonizes others. We expect our president, and all who serve this nation as leaders, to be always mindful of the common good and the dignity of each and every person.You hold a position that has the potential to inspire the best of every one of us and we ask you to use this unique status to bring about healing and never seek to create division."

Group of Students

A group of students from St. Andrew’s Catholic Church in Apex, NC recently spent a week with Sister Mary Ann Czaja. Joining her from Sunday to Friday, the students prepared food for the soup kitchen (150 meals each day), helped with the distribution of food for the public (sixty families), and prepared and painted the back porch at Tarboro Community Outreach. While taking care of business, the students also took time to interact and get to know the homeless men and women who are served at the center. This labor of Christian love has inspired six members of the group to return for three years in a row and Sister Mary Ann is looking forward to welcoming them again next year.

Sisters Care for Creation in Their Garden

Sisters of St. Agnes tend to creation in their little garden as the heat of summer envelopes tiny Fond du Lac.  The lush greens perfume the little area with the aroma of leaves and it becomes a symphony of the different color of flowers. The vegetables they plant feeds the human body; it also feeds the soul with the picture it presents in that stretch  of space. When Mother Nature wants to give her scorched land  a drink, the Sisters save rain water in a barrel and use that water for watering plants and other activities not requiring potable water.
