Celebrating Sr. Mary Martin's Feast Day

Because the feast of St. Martin de Porres fell on a Sunday our day-long prioral feast day was transferred to this past Thursday. We had a delightful celebration for Sr. Mary Martin's feast with tasty treats from the kitchen, music, dance and just simply being together. DSC_0031

Each sister greeted Sr. Mary Martin and received a piece of chocolate, stationary and a soap dish!

DSC_0050  DSC_0088A group of sisters did the Virginia Reel. The "gentlemen" decided that their costumes were too boring and needed a little spicing up! DSC_0101Sr. Mary Cecilia had us all laughing with "The Alto's Lament" a song that incorporates tunes and words of numerous musicals! (Sr. Mary Cecilia is very much a soprano!)

DSC_0154Sr. Mary Catharine got out her recorder and played a few pieces with Sr. Denise Marie after not playing for about 10 years! DSC_0148Well, maybe we need to practice! DSC_0170
