The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago’s 9th annual Swinging for the Sisters golf outing was held on
May 15th at Cog Hill Golf and Country Club in Lemont. This year there was a wonderful turnout as one hundred and twelve golfers participated in the event. The golfers began the day with breakfast prepared by the staff at Cog Hill. Sister M. Bernadette Bajuscik, the General Minister of the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago, then welcomed the golfers and wished them good luck as they gathered in their golf carts to begin the event.

The golfers enjoyed a full round of golf and were blessed with good weather and no rain. After the event, they were served a barbecue lunch and a prize raffle was held. All donations received will help support the Sisters and their ministries: Madonna Foundation and St. Jude House.
