Trip to Steubenville

Our Booth

Our Booth

 Sr. Rose Therese and I left on Oct. 23rd and returned to Peoria on Oct. 25th for a Vocation Fair. Franciscan Univ. of Steubenville was a beautiful place. One evening we made our way to the adoration chapel(a replica of The Portiuncula) to do our Rosary, meditation, and Divine Office. It was such a special experience. I can understand why it was a treasured place to St. Francis.

 We met so many priests and religious. My first thought was: “I’ve never seen so many priests and religious in one place!” Kind of a curious statement, I know, but growing up in the South I had never seen a Sister except on TV.

So, Sister Rose Therese and I took turns staying at the booth so that we’d also have a chance to walk around. It was a wonderful experience for me as well as for the young people who attended. We met so many young people who are on fire for the faith and very serious about seeking His will. It was a wonderful encouragement. Our neighbors during the fair were the Sisters of Life and the Sisters of St. Basil the Great(Byzentine). We enjoyed conversation during lulls in activity. It was a busy and fun couple of days but we are grateful to be back home.

Well, that’s all for now.

God bless, Sister Veronica

    Just want to add a special thanks to the girl who kindly took our picture for us. I did not want to post pictures of individual students there without having asked them.
