We got to attend Mass with the Sisters - this is the chapel outside the enclosure where they have daily Mass.
We had a joyful visit with the Mother of the Community. We were surprised to learn the Benedictine Monastery was established in Vermont in 1981. The Nuns were invited by the Bishop to form a foundation from their monastery in Canada which at the time was at capacity with 75 sisters. The Community belongs to the Benedictine Congregation of Solesmes.
We feel truly blessed to have the prayers of these beautiful Nuns for our family and Phil's work of Catechesis and Evangelization and look forward to visiting them often.
Phil and the children planted the garden this week!
We made thank you flower pots for the children's Catechists.
We welcomed 6 new chicks to our home: Goldie, Sunny. Rose, Brownie, Flash and Eggna.
William, Miriam and Luke have been enjoying their "home school" swim lessons.
The children and I enjoyed a family end of the year dance/ "Masquerade ball"
We had fun doing the Virginia Reel.
William and Miriam did well at their first piano recital.
Phil got the hammock up.
Who needs monkey bars when you have a pine tree?
We're thanking the Lord for the beautiful weather on this Trinity Sunday!
Phil's gone until Thursday so it's going to be a busy week! We praise God for His many blessings especially on this feast of the Most Holy Trinity! Our prayers are with you - please pray for us too!
