Mark Your Calendars…Mother Daughter Days

The date is set! Our annual Mother Daughter Days will be held August 17-19 at St. Francis Convent in Hankinson, North Dakota.

Sr. Jean Louise has been leading this lovely event for over ten years, now.

It’s an opportunity for mothers and their daughters to get away, spend some special time together growing in their faith, and even have a little fun.

They join the Sisters for prayer, Mass, meals, and story sharing.

If you’re interested in joining us, please call Sr. Jean Louise at: 701.208.1245 or email:
