This past Saturday, June 7th, Luke Boiarski, SCN, and three SCN lay mission program volunteers arrived at the Crow Reservation in Pryor, Montana. The group was graciously greeted by Sisters Mary Lou and Sharon Smith, two sisters from Leavenworth, Kansas, who have been there in ministry at St. Charles Mission for the past three years.
More from Sr. Luke:
On this Pentecost Sunday, June 8th, how privileged we were to have the opportunity to listen to the Crow chant and to hear the gospel read in Crow by Fr. Randolph Graczyk, who has been on the reservation for over thirty years. It was a wonderful experience to be able to celebrate liturgy in such a profound way on this special feast.
Later in the evening, after traveling to Billings to purchase supplies for our week of service, we gathered to hear J. R. Goes Ahead share stories of the history, culture and spirituality of the Crow people.
