Veni si Amas - Holiness

We returned very late last night from our adventure in Alton and St. Louis. Three women joined in the Veni si Amas retreat with the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George and two more went to the Holiness retreat with the Carmelite Sisters of the Divine Heart of Jesus.

For photos of the Veni si Amas retreat, follow this link: Veni si Amas

We'll have more to tell later - and hopefully some photos of the Holiness retreat!

Bishop Frederick Baraga

Last weekend was a gift.

Sister M. Ancilla, Sister Mary David and I set out on an adventure to find Bishop Baraga, the missionary priest and bishop to the Ogibwa tribe of Native Americans. Known also at the "Shoe Priest" or "Shepherd of the Wilderness," he lived and died serving the Native Americans and the settlers in Michigan, northern Wisconsin and Canada.

Our trek took us to the Cathedral of Marquette, Michigan, the shores of Lake Superior and Lake Michigan; we saw the site of the his first church and examined artifacts from his life and ministry.

We also had the gift of seeing awesome (as in awe-inspiring) scenery.

For more information on his life, you can follow this link:  http://www.dioceseofmarquette.org/venbishopbaragahistory
