A group of faculty and students from Cloud College Community College toured the Sisters of St. Joseph Motherhouse this afternoon, and then stayed for supper and conversation.


The visit was organized by Sister Julie Christensen, with assistance from Sisters Jean Rosemarynoski and Anna Marie Broxterman, and Sister Judy Stephens led the tour. This is the second time in about six months that the college has helped arrange for its students and staff to tour the historic building and have a chance to meet the sisters.


The idea is to introduce new faculty and students to the sisters and some of Concordia’s past and present, while also helping to keep sisters at the Motherhouse informed about the college and the people there.

    Thanks for this report. What a good connection with the college/ invitation to the Motherhouse/ history and a meal to top it off!
