Our Peak is Here

Despite some rainy, cold days in early October our leaves held on, literally--and now that warmer and sunnier autumn days are here I think our "peak time" is as well. Here's a look around the perimeter of the Mount. I think this awesome beauty must be nature's way of trying to "soothe" us so that we can "endure" the 90" of snow that the winter months will soon bring!

St. Scholastica from the front.

And from the back.

The west side of the chapel is framed by a semi-circle of fire-red bushes.

The Neighborhood Art House received the first "Imagine" award from Arts Erie, the major grants dispersal and arts support organization in the area. Sr. Anne Wambach and Sr. Margaret Ann Pilewski provided a display of the children's work for the 100-150 guests at the reception this week. Congratulations to the many sisters that minister, volunteer or work behind the scenes to make the NAH the marvelous place that it is.
