Easter at the Monastery

We are having a beautiful Easter celebration at the monastery today, and it's only beginning! The entire Easter octave (that's from now until next Sunday, May 1) is one long celebration of this most glorious feast. Today, we'd like to share some pictures with you:

We were delighted to have our friend Father R.B. Williams, O.P.  (who gave our community retreat last year) come to spend the triduum with us. He concelebrated Mass and the Good Friday liturgy with our chaplain, Fr. J.D. Logan, O.P. and they both did a great job! Later, Fr. R.B. shared with us about his travels and adventures as an itinerant Dominican preacher. All too quickly he was back on the road, but not before we got this picture of him with some of the sisters.

We hope you are having a blessed celebration of Easter and will continue to celebrate during the octave and until the Easter season ends at Pentecost (June 12 this year)!
