Easter Egg Fun

Benedictines cultivate beauty whenever they can – even in the art of Easter egg decorating. “There was nothing haphazard about the annual event organized by Sister Helen Heher,” said Sister Marilyn Schauble, one of the egg decorators. “Every detail was attended to with care. It was so inviting that you couldn’t help but want to decorate eggs and create something beautiful.”

Eggs are symbolic of new life and for Christians decorated Easter eggs are a sign of Resurrection life and joy. “It was a fun evening,” said Sister Anne Wambach, prioress. “As the number of beautifully decorated eggs grew so did our excitement for Easter. We joyfully anticipate the celebration of Resurrection.”
