Our sisters began their trip out to the Midwest, Feb. 8-12, in the subzero temperatures of North Dakota. Sr. Faustina Maria Pia and Sr. Magnificat Rose shared the charism of life to high school students “The Rock,” an event sponsored by St. Mary Central Catholic High School in Bismarck. They also visited classrooms and later spent time with students at University of Mary. 

They continued on to Notre Dame University, for the Edith Stein Project Conference, an initiative that began in 2006 for students to dialogue and learn about issues facing modern culture and the Church’s response, while emphasizing the unique beauty of femininity and masculinity. Our sisters spoke on the feminine heart and prayer.
