Marian Days! Carthage, MO: Time to Meet - Time to Serve
Updated: Aug 8, 2019
Marian Days this year was from August 2-5, 2018. What is Marian Days? It is an annual gathering of 70,000 - 100,000 Vietnamese-Catholics from around the world for Mass, talks, food, and conversation in Carthage, Missouri.
Sixteen of our CMR sisters attended. You may have seen us around! We all got a chance to catch up with old friends and meet new ones. We definitely made a lot of wonderful memories! Some sisters volunteered to clean the restrooms every day. It was hard work but serving with each other and other volunteers was great fun. Other sisters were at the vocations booth meeting young women interested in religious life or who just wanted to say hi to us, get some free candies, and play with slime! :-D We appreciated every visit!
Some new things this year: Sr. Faustina and Sr. Julie had a small vocations talk at Calvary Hill, Sr. Janine with 4 other priests & religious participated in a Q&A panel in the CRM Auditorium, and we got a new banner! Check out the pics, say hi, and hope to see you at Marian Days 2019 (August 1-4, 2019)!!!
