Mass of Thanksgiving

Yesterday we were blessed to have Fr. John Baptist Hoang, OP say a Mass of Thanksgiving for us. Fr. John Baptist was one the friars ordained to the priesthood this past May.  He is now parochial vicar at St. Joseph's Parish in Greenwich Village, NYC. Father gave a wonderful homily and, after giving us each his blessing, we were able to meet him after breakfast for a parlor visit. 

Unfortunately you will have to take our word for it as we didn't take an pictures. 

One other exciting thing happened yesterday: postulant Sr. Aisling knelt for the prioress's blessing at the end of evening recreation to begin her 8 day pre-clothing retreat. Please keep her in your prayers as she prepares to begin her novitiate!
