Carlette Gentle SCN, Kerry Rowland SCH, Miriam Juarez, and Lauren Sprigg traveled to Punta Gorda, Toledo, to visit with Higinia Bol, SCN. As part of their time together they had the blessing of the new Sisters of Charity of Nazareth home. Rev. Matthew Ruhl and associate pastor Rev. Sam Wilson of St. Peter Claver Parish officiated the blessing. Afterward, a delicious Mayan dish (caldo and corn tortillas) was shared and enjoyed by all.

“How great it was to have a community presence in Toledo even for a short while! Now, I look forward to the day when our two SCN Sisters from India will join me in community and ministry.,” said Sister Higinia.
