November 2016 Associates Meeting - A Focus on Philippine

The St. Louis/St. Charles Associates Group gathered on November 6, 2016 at the Provincial Archives in St. Louis.

Kathleen Hughes, RSCJ, led the group's time together.  All were invited to share their knowledge and love of Philippine:  what drew us to her, what touched us about her life, what inspired us?  The icon of Sophie's blessing of Philippine engaged the opportunity to reflect on what might have been their parting words.

After some light refreshments, Kathleen shared the 2017-2018 plans for celebrating the bicentennial of Philippine (and the Society's) coming to America and ultimately founding a convent and school in St. Charles.

The afternoon was a lovely time of praying, talking, and sharing about Philippine and the upcoming extravaganza for the bicentennial.
