St. Louis: Japanese Festival

September 7:

Sr. Assumpta, Sr. Rebecca, Sr. Emi, and Emily went to the Missouri Botanical Gardens in St. Louis for the Japanese Festival! We saw a sumo wrestling demonstration, ate yaki soba (fried noodles) for lunch, saw a Japanese drum concert, and much more. Sr. Emi, whose mother is from Japan, was our great tour guide and shared with us many interesting things about her experience of visiting her family in Japan. It is a blessing to live in such an international community among sisters who are so happy to share their culture!
