Blessing for the New Year!

MONASTIC LIFE IS SERIOUS...

After breakfast this morning we gathered in the Chapter Hall for the drawing of patrons, prayer intentions and personal scripture quotes for the year 2010.


The three youngest in the novitiate call out the names of the Sisters at random.


Obviously, Sr. Maria Teresa found something delightful!


Sr. Mary Daniel listens as Sr. Mary Magdalene and Sr. Maria Teresa read Sister's patron and scripture quote for the year.


Each Sister listens anxious to know what HERS will be this year!

Sr. Mary Ellen Timothy kisses the Infant Jesus.

AND SOMETIMES MONASTIC LIFE IS FUN!
