Visit to CSF in San Francisco

Sr Sue recently made a 2 week visit to the CSF sisters in the Province of the Americas, who all live in San Francisco – Cecilia, Jean, Maggie, Pamela Clare and Ruth. This was part of a plan to help the two provinces of CSF to keep in touch more effectively, by arranging for one sister a year to visit the other province, so in February 2014 the European Province sisters expect to welcome Sr Maggie. Sue’s visit in June enabled her to attend the American CSF Provincial Chapter held annually. She really valued the opportunity to spend time with the sisters, and to see something of the range of ministries they carry out. It was Sue’s first visit to the West Coast, and only her second to USA so she was grateful for the opportunity for a little sight-seeing too!
