Fourth of July!
We've just started the second year of our Monastic Theological Studies Program, bringing together sisters from Dominican monasteries around the country--well, from Michigan and New Jersey, and our professor this week came from California. More about that later, though! Today we celebrated the 4th of July. We had classes in the morning--but we couldn't let the 4th of July pass by without having our traditional flag raising and picnic!
Sr. Bernadette Marie and postulant Thuy raise the flag with a little help from Sr. Mary Margaret while Sr. Mary Thomas looks on
Hats are a good idea in the East Texas sun! Sr. Mary Christine, Sr. Maria Teresa (Summit, NJ), Sr. Joseph Maria (Summit, NJ) and Sr. Mary Dominic leave the flagpole area.
Happy Birthday to Sr. Mary Lucy, who celebrates her 87th year today!!
