Weekend at the monastery

At least every couple weeks or so, I make the hour drive from my mission house back to the monastery. This weekend I made the trek for a gathering of the sisters in initial formation (the newer folks who haven't yet made final profession). Sister Kristine Anne, our prioress (Head Nun, a.k.a. Nun Number 1), and our subprioress Sister Jane Will (Nun Number 2), gave a presentation on good communication and how we work on that in community. It was a relaxing day, and it was good to catch up with the other formation people.

I always love coming home and joining our sisters for prayer in our church. While we also pray daily with the other sisters on mission, when you sit in a bench amid the bigger community and hear the chant echoing off those almost-one-hundred-year-old gorgeous walls, you just know, "I'm home."

And Monday, back to a week teaching Sacraments!
