It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Having engaged in a long-standing community tradition of tree trimming and tree blessing the monastery is beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Once the tree was decorated, Sister Anne Wambach, prioress, pointed out that, “This tree is a blessing to our home. It reminds us of all that is beautiful, all that is filled with the gentleness and the promise of God. It stands in our midst as a tree of light that we might promise such beauty to one another and to our world.”

As is our custom, the tree was lighted by the member longest in the community. Sister Irene Warchol, 74 years a Benedictine, did the honors.
