St. Scholastica Celebration
Celebrating the Feast of St. Scholastica (a solemnity for us Benedictine Nuns), brought the added joy of having Archabbot Douglas Nowicki, OSB, from our neighboring Benedictine brothers at St. Vincent Archabbey, Latrobe, PA. Archabbot Douglas was the principal celebrant and homilist for the celebration of the Eucharist and then joined us for a festive meal.
This is just another example of the wonderful relationship we have with our Benedictine brothers. One of the monks now serves as our chaplain, others are spiritual directors and/or confessors, and others come out to offer conferences to the community to further enhance our spiritual life.
God's blessings to you, Archabbot Douglas, and your community for all the ways you help us to grow in our love for and union with God.
