Franciscan Sister Mary Ann Spanjers shares on an evening of gratitude at Santa Cruz School, Tucson, Arizona, in honor of our Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity service in the last years, but especially Sister Ellen Pachmayer’s current ministry as school counselor.

The school administration, faculty, families, former teachers, students, alumni and Carmelite priests of Santa Cruz School, Tucson, AZ gathered to celebrate a delightful evening of gratitude for Sister Ellen Pachmayer’s 12 years of loving service and that of all Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity who walked with the children and families of Santa Cruz School for the past 15 years.

The evening was filled with conversation, hugs, stories, delicious food complete with cake and many wishes of gratitude and promise of mutual prayers.
