On Monday, December 18, 28 Bishop Ahr students along with Principal S Donna Marie Trukowski, Campus Minister S Cynthia Marie Babyak, CSSF, Associate Principal, Harry Ziegler, BGA Chaplain Father Keith Cervine, eight faculty/staff members and alumni traveled to Immaculate Conception Convent in Lodi, NJ.
The presence of all of the sisters from Immaculate Conception Convent added to the excitement of this year’s visit. Having so many sisters present for the singing of carols and acting out the “12 Days of Christmas” enhanced the joy of the evening.
Each table of students, sisters, and teachers created and acted out their specific day of Christmas. Sister Cynthia said, “Everyone had a smile on their face and sounds of laughter could be heard throughout the room.”
Sister Cynthia summed up the evening, “Although we brought gifts for the sisters, the gifts of the heart that the sisters at the care center gave to each of us can never be measured with money. These ‘special gifts’ of presence, sharing, praying, laughing, and singing will forever be a part of AHR Christmas memories and heart!
“Our visit with the sisters was the Best Christmas Gift that we could give and receive!”
