Community Recreation is an important part of our monastic day. Not only is it a time to TALK and TALK some more but it is most especially a time of fraternal communion when we share with each other on various levels.
Recreation has different forms. Sometimes it means a walk in the garden, a game of basketball or a game of scrabble, mini-pool, or putting a puzzle together. Some nights we just sit around and talk and other nights, mostly Sunday nights, the handwork comes out and we all look pretty "domesticated"!
Can you tell that Sr. Mary Catharine originally had plans to teach 2nd and 3rd grade!
We don't watch TV (except something special with the Holy Father) but do sometimes watch a movie, usually of a religious nature or an old movie!
