Camp Maria Retreat Center hosted its first evening of “Faith, Food and Fellowship” on Monday, July 9. Sisters and Associates, enjoying vacation days at Camp, were there to share a video presentation of our ministries in the US and around the world. They also shared stories of their individual journeys in ministry that evolved from teaching and nursing to ministries on the margins over the years. Associates shared about their involvement with the SCN Congregation and encouraged those in attendance to consider joining.
The evening began with guests gathering to meet and greet each other. Dinner was served at 6:00 pm, provided by Camp Maria’s chef, Terri Williams. The program of sharing and conversation was introduced by Director Ann Kovalcik, at 7:00 pm.
The last guests left at 9:00 pm, after renewing acquaintances with Sisters and Associates. The evening, first of several planned for the year, closed with prayer and promises to stay in touch with each other, Camp Maria, the Sisters and Associates.
