Brownie Troop Visits MMH
The St. Antoninus second grade Brownie Troop visited Mother Margaret Hall on Friday, Oct. 2 to reconnect with their Sister of Charity pals. The relationship began in the fall 2014 and has only grown over the past year. The girls and Sisters worked together on their My Promise My Faith pin, which allows the girls to strengthen their connection between faith and Girl Scouts
