The School Sisters of St. Francis of Christ the King to Sponsor “Golf on the Hill” Fundraiser on May 20

The School Sisters of St. Francis of Christ the King have shared their commitment to the Gospel and to the spreading of God’s Kingdom in the U.S for more than 100 years. They have done this through various ministries among children, young adults, adults seeking to deepen their faith, and the elderly.  They are keeping their commitment alive in a variety of ways both on and off the Mount Assisi “hill.” Our Lady of the Angels Retreat Ministry offers talks, spiritual direction, and retreats to numerous groups from all over the country.

The Sisters will be sponsoring their 24th-annual “Golf on the Hill,” with proceeds from this event helping them with needed work in their ministries, both on and off campus, as they continue to share the Gospel message to those they meet and serve.

​Alvernia Manor Senior Living is also co-sponsoring the golfing event. The manor embodies a legacy of Franciscan ideals.  For over 45 years, it has provided a secure home where seniors can live up to their greatest potential in an atmosphere of Christian love.  This unique senior living community provides a warm, homey setting filled with compassion, fulfillment and fun and gives families the peace of mind knowing their loved ones are cared for and thriving.

By making a donation or participating in Golf on the Hill, you will be making a contribution that will help the Sisters and Alvernia Manor Senior Living continue to make life better for individuals in need.

The event will take place on May 20 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Ruffled Feathers Golf Club, 1 Pete Dye Dr., Lemont. There will be a 7:30 a.m. check-in, with coffee and pastries, and a 9 a.m. shotgun start, with a scramble format. There will also be a silent auction, raffles, prizes. Contests will include the World Famous “Beat the Nun.”

The cost is $175, which includes a round of golf with cart, lunch, dinner, refreshments and a few contests. The dinner-only option costs $50. For more information, contact Carrie Peters at orgo to
