Last Sunday with Formator!

January 17:

This Sunday was our last Sunday to spend with Sr. Rebecca before she goes to Boston for a week of meetings. So Jackie, Sylwia, Emily, and Sr. Rebecca all went into downtown St. Louis for some sightseeing and fun. We started with Mass at St. Francis Xavier (the St. Louis University church). Next, we went to Union Station. This used to be the big train station in St. Louis, but now it is a mall. We walked around, visited a gift shop, a fudgery (where we saw a fudge-making demonstration!), and a small museum of old railroad items. Before out last stop, we went to a hotel downtown to help Sr. Emi pack up the exhibit at the Marian Conference. The hotel has a restaurant on top, so we rode the elevator up to the 28th floor and saw a great view of St. Louis -- and an excellent view of the Arch! Finally, we went to the Arch, and rode the tram all the way to the top. From 630 feet in the air, we could see everywhere in St. Louis, and across the Mississippi River into Illinois. And Jesus gave us beautiful clear weather so we could enjoy the view. After we came down, we went to Starbucks for some coffee and snacks. We all enjoyed very much our last Sunday together.
