Canisius at the Mount—A wonderful gift!

For a group of 12 students and mentors from Canisius College, winter break meant a trip to Erie. “It was a wonderful week,” said Sister Marilyn Schauble, Vocation Director and organizer. “Canisius has been coming to the Mount to give service for many years, even before I started working with them 10 years ago. Each year I enjoy it even more.”

The group lived at the monastery and worked with the sisters in various Benedictine ministries. In addition, they experienced special sessions that helped them learn about monastic life and also enjoyed fun times with the community. “These students and their adult mentors are the best,” one of the sisters shared. “I can’t even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed them.” New friends were made and invitations to come back and visit were plentiful.

“We are already looking forward to next year,” said Sister Anne Wambach, prioress. “The students and their mentors are a blessing to us in more ways than I can count and we are very grateful.”
