Canisius Students have arrived--let the experience begin!

What better day than Epiphany to extend welcome to a group of students from Canisius College who traveled from Buffalo to spend their Winter Break at the Mount. The “star” that led them was the desire to engage in this special ministry and service endeavor.

The group of students and their adult leader posed with Sister Marilyn Schauble, Vocation Director and organizer of the week after Sunday liturgy and before they embarked on a tour of the monastery with Sister Jean Wolbert, Hospitality Director. “This has become one of our favorite weeks of the year. We are pleased and excited to welcome this college group into our home and hearts,” shared Sister Marilyn.

The week will include prayer and meals with the community, involvement in several Benedictine ministries, both at the monastery and in inner-city Erie, and input on topics including lectio divina, Liturgy of the Hours, monastic values and social justice awareness. There will also be a game night with the community and a special blessing from the prioress and community before they make their return journey to school.

Let the experience begin!
