Laughing and learning filled the motherhouse a couple of weeks ago as my community put on two camps for girls. One was a leadership camp for middle school girls, and the other is called BFF camp - or Best Franciscan Friend camp--for 10 and 11 year olds. High school young women come and assist with the camp, and everyone has the opportunity to learn about our charism. In addition to assisting with the camps, I also hosted a 17 year old whom I'd only met through e-mail. She was interested in learning more about religious life.
