The other day, our novice mistress Sr. Mary Catharine surprised the novitiate with an 'O' party. ('O' as in the Great O Antiphons!) After all their hard work in the soap department and then baking and putting together gift baskets for our many benefactors they deserved a treat. There were gingerbread houses to make, sparkling cider to drink, and cookies to taste....and they even turned on their Christmas lights a little early for a festive atmosphere! (Note: there are a lot of pictures here so it may take some time to load!)
And then it was time to decorate the Professed Community Room!
Just a reminder to all you local friends-- our Christmas Midnight Mass will be at Midnight! Come early to get a seat.
