Blessing of the Gardens
With Fr. John Vidmar, OP here for the Rosary Pilgrimage last Sunday, it was the perfect time for the blessing of the gardens. Father was led on a whirlwind tour of the grounds as he blessed the vegetable gardens, vineyard, orchard, berry patch, pond, flower gardens, greenhouse, and St. Dominic's orange tree. No leaf, twig, or flower was left unblessed!
The day was so nice that we were able to have a picnic dinner on the cloister.
