Members of the Serra Club of Toledo attended morning Mass at the Monastery of the Visitation in Toledo and provided food for the cloistered sisters to enjoy later in the day. The group sponsors the picnic to coincide with an annual mini-golf outing and ice cream social the club hosts for all women religious of the diocese. Since the Visitation Sisters have the privilege of papal enclosure, they spend most of their lives within the monastery, leaving only for business, medical needs and other duties. As contemplative nuns, their primary apostolate is prayer. (Photo courtesy of Bud Weaver)
