The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago held their 11th annual Swinging for the Sisters Golf Outing on June 23rd at Cog Hill Golf and Country Club in Lemont. It was a wonderful turnout this year and a beautiful day.

The golfers began the day with breakfast prepared by the staff at Cog Hill. They then lined up in their golf carts to get ready to go to their assigned starting hole. Sr. M. Bernadette Bajuscik, General Minister of the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago, thanked the golfers for participating in the event and then wished them good luck.

After a long day of golfing, the golfers were served a barbecue lunch. There was also a prize raffle and a split the pot prize. All donations received will help support the Sisters and their ministries.
