Day 6 – Feast of our Lady of Mt. Carmel – End-of-Camp Party

17 Jul

Our “to do” list was long today. It ranged from meeting with Sister Fifi for her insight on camp to getting girls to finish their projects to to printing individual photos to being ready for Mass at 3. We did most of it!


The meeting with Sister Fifi went well. We learned a lot about the girls we got closer to over the week. She also talked about how camp was part of the Hogar. The girls really look forward to camp all year. The Sisters really appreciate the Church of Saint Edward and all the past travelers!

Mass to celebrate the Feast day was at another Carmelite Order – a contemplative order. The wear full habits and only have visitors on Sunday afternoons and some special days like today. Surprise! We also met seminarians and a priest from Wisconsin!

The Party Started with Bon ice cream. We also had chips and pizza

No pics during Mass. We greeted the Sisters after Mass. They stayed separated from us, and were charming.

Despite tears, it was a fun party!

We look forward to returning next year!
