In preparation for the feast of the Presentation of Mary on November 21st, our community will be in retreat Wednesday, November 18 - Saturday, November 21st. This day is very special to us because it is Pro Orantibus Day
and is also the day when our monastery FIRST made Solemn Profession and was fully incorporated into the Order as Nuns of the Order of Preachers back in 1955. This day has extra significance because our community had been waiting over THIRTY YEARS for this privilege, living the Constitutions of the Nuns as best they could until the day when the Archbishop would give his permission.
If you want to learn more about Pro Orantibus Day and what it means to the Church and to YOU, go to the www.cloisteredlife.com website and click on the Pro Orantibus button. There are many valuable resources there.
Any Shoppe Orders received November 18-22 will not be filled until November 23rd.
