Variety is the...

A variety of recent happenings to share today: four of our sisters are returning from recent trips out of the country. Two sisters went to visit a sister-friend in Honduras and experienced her life and ministry in this Central American country. Two others spent 10 days in and around Merida, Mexico visiting the Mission of Friendship, an Erie diocesan-sponsored mission. All came home with new experiences to share with all of us.

Meanwhile three sisters "back home" are in the news. Sr. Annette and Sr. Pat received a national award from the Wildlife Habitat Council. Sr. Pat was able to travel to Baltimore to accept it on behalf of the EarthForce staff. Sr. Ann M., a social worker specializing in trauma in young people, gave a presentation this week to an Adoption Conference in the area. You can read more about both of these here.

Meanwhile, "on the home front," a half a dozen guests are still in our guest hall this week and all three hermitages are full. This Sunday will bring more visitors as we have invited our November Community of Life participants to liturgy on the feast of Christ the King. Big crowd expected.

Fall weather is holding strong. No snow clouds on the horizon....yet.
