Five Sisters of St. Francis from Rochester, Minn., Springfield, Mo., and El Paso, Texas visited the Mid-South this past week to celebrate the founding of Project Outreach, a non-profit, charitable organization, which was founded by their classmate, the late Sister Elaine Wicks. The sisters spoke to diocesan volunteers at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Germantown, Tenn., on Monday evening, October 8. With a combined 250 years of service together, the sisters reflected on their experiences of service and encouraged participants to share their faith journeys with one another. They discussed the importance of how prayer and reflection can lead to God’s plan and his ultimate expression of love.
