Easter!

The celebration of Easter means rising at the late hour of 6:05 AM,three meals in the community room with talking, chocolate, walks out in the beautiful garden or for those who got little sleep the night before, a nap! It is a full day because we also sing the full Office and of course, Holy Mass, which is at 8:00 AM. The next few days after Easter are free days and music instead of reading at meals. We celebrate the entire Octave and by the end of Low Sunday we ready to get back to "normal"!
