Reflections from Africa (continued)
Continuing our series of reflections from some of those who went on the recent trip to Africa, hear what Jenna Sutton from the Connelly School of the Holy Child in Potomac, MD had to share:
"When the opportunity came for me to visit the Holy Child schools and missions in West Africa, I leapt at the chance! To see another part of Africa, to meet the SHCJ nuns and students at the schools, and to experience another culture seemed a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. While the trip was short, I feel we made good use of the few hours we had in each of the places we visited, gaining an appreciation of the people we met and places we saw. It was wonderful to make this journey with other Holy Child teachers from the United States as this enhanced our overall view of the extent of the Holy Child Network of Schools and its potential in uniting people across the globe. In particular, the strong young women we met at the schools and the generous and loving nuns we grew to know were the highlights of the trip. I returned to the U.S. with a personal challenge: to greet each day and each person I meet with the love and hospitality and sincere interest that I experienced on this journey."
