Happy Mardi Gras!

Happy Mardi Gras! I hope this was a fun day for all of you. This morning I went to Saint Joseph Catholic School in Princeton, Indiana and talked about vocations with the 5th and 6th graders. They were very attentive and had a lot of great questions! Tonight we had a nice meal and cream puffs for dessert. We were all doned in our Mardi Gras beads and played a Mardi Gras game. No one found a baby in their cream puff though. Too bad!

Today is also the feast of Saint Walburga. She is a special Benedictine saint to us. Her actual feast is tomorrow but it was transferred to today because of tomorrow being Ash Wednesday. During Vespers this evening Sister Kristine Anne, our prioress and Sister Jane, our sub prioress, blessed us with Saint Walburga oil, asking her intercession for our wellness and healing. To learn more about her, click on her name.

I would also like to take this time to wish you many blessings on your Lenten journey. I pray it will be a blest time for you, a time of prayer and renewal. Let us all remember especially those who are preparing to enter the Catholic church this coming Easter.
