Enjoying Autumn Days at the Monastery

Our community begins our 4 day retreat tomorrow to prepare for our annual devotional renewal of vows to take place during Mass on the Feast of the Presentation of Mary in the Temple on November 21st. This is also Pro Orantibus Day!

Please do keep us in your prayers and be assured of ours during these sacred days.

I thought you would enjoy seeing some fall photos from around the monastery.

Sr. Mary Therese with her 2 brothers, cousin and nephew were here to install beautiful shrines they crafted for each Stations of the Cross. Now her brother Lawrence is refurbishing each station!  God reward you!
