About 25 children and six Precious Blood Sisters exercised their creativity through painting, weaving and candle making at Sunshine and Sisters, held August 3 at Maria Stein Shrine. The group also made communion hosts as the first Precious Blood Sisters would have, and enjoyed a nature walk on the shrine’s grounds. The day began with Eucharistic adoration in the chapel.
