Associates, Sisters, family and friends came from near and far to participate in this year’s covenant ceremony.  
Sr. Marilyn Trowbridge, CCA US Area, welcomed five new Associates to the Franciscan Sisters of the Poor family. 

In addition, five associates renewed their covenant.  We were delighted that Sr. Giannica Selmo, Second Congregational Councilor and liaison to Associates was able to join us for this special occasion. 

Our ceremony was beautifully intertwined with our Eucharistic Liturgy.  After Mass all gathered in the Centennial Barn to enjoy and share a picnic and fellowship.  
Below are some images from the day.
