We had a delightful visit with a transitional deacon from our Tyler diocese, Nelson Munoz. Deacon Nelson will be ordained this summer and we hope he will be able to return and celebrate a First Mass for us in our chapel!
May was such a busy month for us…not only visitors but also lots of intense and stormy weather! We\’d like to bring you some glimpses of life at the Monastery during May and very early June that we didn\’t have a chance to post before!
All the rain has been good news for Sr. Marie Augustine\’s garden! We\’ve been eating lots of her delicious organic produce this past month and hope for more to come.
Sr. Mary Veronica received this grapevine as a gift from a friend and it has really taken off!
Looking for grapes…they are still ripening (although some have turned to raisins in the now hot sun!). Since the squirrels and birds enjoy them too, we\’re not sure how many Sister will be able to harvest– but we hope for a few bunches at least!
This visitor has been enjoying the tall green grass around the laundry building. Hopefully he (or she) hasn\’t figured out where Sr. Marie Augustine\’s garden is!
Blessed be God in all His many gifts to us!
