Our Sisters at the Midwest-Appalachia CLM Conference

Sisters Maria Philomena and Maria Rosaria were both presenters at this past weekend’s first annual Midwest-Appalachia Catholic Land Movement Conference. The event was hosted at Edelweiss House in Greensburg, Indiana, and featured numerous other presenters.

Sister Maria Rosaria’s presentation was an “herb walk” across the property, showing the attentive participants various native plants and explaining their medicinal use for home remedies. Sister Maria Philomena talked about her favorite four-legged critter, the pig, and was the impromptu “narrator” of the pig slaughter that took place as part of the conference. (One of the conference organizers tweeted, “From an old timer at the conference… ‘I think that nun knows more about hogs then I do.’”)

Below are some embedded tweets with photos and videos from the event.
