Move-In Day

Surrounded by care; upheld in prayer. For Jacqueline Small the journey continues. Several members of the community lent a hand to welcome this postulant-to-be and help her move in. Jackie has been discerning a vocation to the monastic way of life with Sister Marilyn Schauble, Vocation Director, and will soon begin her postulancy, the first stage of initial monastic formation.

In her Little Blog for Beginners, Jackie reflects on this next step in her journey. In addition to boxes and bags she shares what she is really trying to bring with her to the monastery: "... gratitude, an open mind, and a little receptiveness, along with my surly, restless, anxious self. We'll see what happens. Whatever comes next––whether I'm here for my whole life or for a few weeks––I'm trusting in its goodness."
