OLOP-summer-2017

When the school year comes to an end, the sisters of the Houses of Formation pack their bags and spend much of the summer on the road.  Girls’ Summer Days, vocations events, Catholic camps, building projects, icon workshops, and door-to-door parish missions: it is a wonderful time to bring Jesus Christ to others!

We share with you some of the events and photos of these apostolates.  Please join us in praying for the fruits of our efforts, and for the conversion of many souls.

Our sisters were also able to join in the “Fiat Days” Vocations Camps with the Diocese of Richmond, Diocese of Arlington, Diocese of Harrisburg, and Archdiocese of Baltimore, as well as the “Totus Tuus” in Rapid City, South Dakota, a camp in Oklahoma, and Camp Veritas in Maryland.  Back in June, sisters also helped building for the poor with the Diocese of Arlington Work Camp 2017.  (There may be more that have not made it onto this list!)

At the end of the day, and as we head into the end of the summer, let us rest a moment with Our Lady…her Assumption and Coronation are coming up.
