The Council of the Association of Monasteries of Nuns of the Order of Preachers in the United States (that's a mouthful, isn't it?) met at our monastery last week. They kept very busy with their meetings, so we didn't see a lot of them, but we enjoyed having them with us! We did have one recreation where we could all talk to each other!
From left to right: Sr. Denise Marie (Summit), Sr. Mary Thomas (Farmington Hills), Sr. Mary Rose (Lufkin), Sr. Mary Catharine (Summit), Sr. Maria Christine (Menlo Park), Fr. Walter Wagner, OP (priest consultant), and Sr. Anna Marie (Springfield).
We are so grateful for all their hard work getting ready for the 2016 Assembly and other projects!
