Aberdeen Sisters and Employees Gather for Summer Picnics
“There is no greater happiness in the world than to be in union.”
Venerable Nano Nagle
Food, fellowship and laughter energized the attendees of our annual summer picnics in August. Sioux Falls’ Presentation Center hosted area sisters and employees while Presentation Place welcomed those in the Aberdeen area.
Sister Gabriella Crowley shared, “The picnic was a special time for us, the sisters, to be together again with our employees. We are able to see some staff regularly, but others we see on a rare occasion. We are so blessed in each one and have very much missed our daily contacts. The visiting and the food was wonderful.”
Staff member Jen Rothenbuehler echoed her comments. “It was so much fun to see everyone in person, visit and catch up. It was also wonderful to have a tour of the sisters’ apartments and take in the uniqueness and personality of each one.”
Spirits were raised as we shared gratitude for these precious times we come together. We are grateful to those who planned the event and look forward to many more to follow.
