Things have been kind a quiet around here with half of the Sisters making their 8-day retreat. The other half of us are the “Marthas” and are keeping things running smoothly – or at least that is our aim!
Last fall we had a vocation commercial made in hopes that it would be aired on EWTN. Well, it takes a lot of time to get something aired on there but I thought YOU might enjoy it and would pass it on to some young women who are discerning a vocation to religious life. We think Sister Rose Marie did a fantastic job!
I have some photos which I didn’t have time to post during Lent. I’ll be sharing them in upcoming posts. These photos were taken on the gaudeamus day of our Vicar Sr. Mary Agnes (3rd from right).
Sampling Sr. Rose Marie’s chocolate chip cookies. Is there anyone who doesn’t enjoy a chocolate chip cookie right out of the oven!? Certainly a treat on a gaudeamus day!
Here Ane Kirstine gets into action making whole wheat bread. She told me the caption under this photo should be “beware of the leaven of the postulant!” As you can tell, nuns do have a sense of humor.
Don’t forget to check out the commercial!
