Stuffing, Sealing, Labeling, Mailing

Yes, it's that time of the year again--time to get the latest issue of "Monastery Bells" ready for mailing! If you're one of our snail mail subscribers, we'll be mailing them out probably around October 7--and if you prefer to view the Bells online, we hope to post it around the same time. We'll let you know when this most recent Bells goes out to the world! 

Meanwhile, we've been busy--not only composing the Bells but trying to get them stuffed into envelopes, then sealing the envelopes, and finally labeling the envelopes for mailing. It's quite a job!

Why are we working on the Bells now since we're not sending them until October 7? Well, our annual retreat begins next week--and we want to be able to spend our extra time praying, et cetera! We'll have more to say about this in a few days. Meanwhile, keep an eye out for the Bells! If you would like to receive the Bells via snail mail--it's absolutely free!--just send us your name and address and we'll put you on the list for our Christmas mailing. This will include our beautiful Christmas card and pocket calendar designed by the nuns! Of course, we don't sell or share our mailing lists with anyone. Sorry, we can't mail the Bells outside the United States.
