Here are July possibilities:

Learn how small changes in our daily routine can reap big benefits for our overall health. This presentation by Barb Backus and Sister Anne will provide information and practical suggestions to help anyone stay well or improve our health. Sunday guests will be present for the renewal of vows of our Sisters in Temporary Profession. Call or text Sister Julie Ann (920-323-9632).
