Renewing Friendship at Summer Gathering of Associates Associates, Sisters and Guests exchanged lively conversation and warm greetings at their “annual picnic” on June 26th. The time together began in the gathering space outside of the Motherhouse chapel. During the prayer we reflected once again on the presence and vision and spirit of our Founder, St Angela Merici. The picnic food included delicious casseroles, salads and deserts contributed by the Associates as well as Chicken and beverages. Summertime allows for relaxed and animated interaction among us as we share our journey of faith.
