Initial Formation Weekend

About once a month, the sisters in initial formation get together. Sometimes we just hang out together, talk and catch up on what's going on. Other times we have a class or a day of reflection. This past weekend, we did both!

Our time together began Friday evening with Evening Prayer and Supper with the monks in initial formation at St. Meinrad Archabbey, an event we do together about once a year. On Saturday morning, after Morning Prayer and Mass, we spent time just talking and really listening to each other. Saturday afternoon, we headed to Huntingburg for an afternoon at the bowling alley! Most of us only bowl about once a year, so it was certainly an afternoon filled with excitement watching each other throw the occasional gutter ball as well as the strikes and spares!

Since I live away from the monastery, it was a nice time to get together with my sisters, and it's always nice to get together with my peers. It helps me remember that we are all on this journey together! Enjoy the pictures!
