Travel Journal

Friday, May 11: The day began with morning prayer and Eucharistic Liturgy. The Sisters gathered to bid farewell to Sister Julie and Alana with blessings and good-bye hugs. Sister Laura drove us to the small Green Bay airport where the plane was ready to transport us back home.  What a fabulous time with the Sisters of St. Francis of the Holy Cross!  

Thursday, May 10: After an awesome podcast with Sister Laura and Sister Mary yesterday, we did a live podcast with the seniors in the Christian Lifestyles class at Notre Dame Academy and 7th and 8th graders from Holy Cross Catholic School. Lots of interesting questions and convos! After the podcast was completed and the equipment all packed up, Sister Max got on the road to drive to her next event. 

Wednesday, May 9: Today is podcast day! This morning we'll set up the podcast equipment and walk around the Motherhouse to take photos to share on social media. Lots to see and appreciate here--awesome glass mosaics and lots of trees and birds.

Tuesday, May 8: After a beautiful, sunny drive, through Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, we arrived in Green Bay -- greeted by warm Franciscan hospitality! The sisters hosted a reception with lots of goodies from Wisconsin: Sister Julie had her first taste of  cheese curds.
