This is America:
The Sisters in Huntington
The Vacation Bible School Titled Cool Kingdom was held from 8th July 2019 to 12th July 2019 at Laurel, St. Mary of the Mills Parish Day Care Center. About 105 school students attend.
The themes were based on Virtues of Mother Mary’s experiences on Obedience, Faith, Love, Purity and Joy. There was a great display of music, acting, art and craft, faith station fun and games. So much so that even the snacks were prepared in line with the theme.
Our St. Mary's Pallottine Community, Huntington, as well as all of our USA communities, had been preparing for Sr. Izabela Swierad, Superior General’s visit for weeks. The lovely prayer composed by Sr. Francesca Lowis was prayed daily by the Community, until her arrival. We were expecting Sr. Izabela to arrive on Sunday, July 14th. However she surprised us by coming one day earlier. Sr. Mary Grace Barile, our Provincial Superior accompanied her from Buckhannon. Our small Community (Srs. Mary Terence Wall, Elisabeth Heptner, Angela Madera, and Joanne Obrochta) greeted her at our supper meal. It was a great joy to see her again.
