Local celebration marks Precious Blood Sisters’ anniversary
Thursday, August 6, 2009
ST. MARYS DEANERY — The Sisters of the Precious Blood will host an outdoor Mass on Sunday, Aug. 16, at 4 p.m. at the Maria Stein Center/Relic Shrine. Precious Blood Father Kenneth Schroeder will preside.
Those attending the Mass are invited to bring a lawn chair. Following the Mass, a picnic-style meal provided by the Sisters will be hosted at the center’s patio area, where tables and chairs are available. The center’s building will be open from noon to 7 p.m., except during the Mass.
The Mass and picnic provide an opportunity for the Sisters to thank the people of the area for their support and friendship over 175 years, and also for families and individuals to enjoy a spiritual and social event with the Sisters, tour the center and relax on the spacious grounds.
