Our Sisters helped as volunteers at the two Steubenville High School Age Conferences that take place in Louisiana:
On June 20-22, 2008 Steubenville South in Alexandria, and
On June 27-29, 2008 Steubenville in the Bayou, in Houma.
Our Sisters have participated in the Steubenville South conference since 1996, and at Steubenville in the Bayou since 2006. Year after year we have been able to send Sisters as prayer ministers and also for vocation promotion purposes.
This year Sisters Juliana, Juana Teresa, and Elizabeth Ann, as well as postulants Danielle and Caroline helped as volunteers at the Steubenville South conference, while Mother Lucy and Sister Mary Thomas did the same at the one "in the Bayou" in Houma.
This year's theme of the Steubenville High School Age Conferences is “WITNESS”. The verse from the Bible that will guide them is from the book of Acts:
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit
has come upon you; and you shall be my witnesses
in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria
and to the end of the earth."
Come Holy Spirit, COME!
