All of the Sisters gathered for a Corporate Reflection Weekend at the monastery April 26-28. It was a joy to have everyone present,including Sisters from Phoenix, St. Petersburg, Erie, Wilkes-Barre, Pittsburgh and Las Vegas, the cities where the Sisters serve presently.
The program began Friday evening with an update session with Patti Benford, Administrator of our nursing home, Mount Macrina Manor.
Saturday began with Matins and Divine Liturgy served by Very Rev. John Petro who led the morning program on the topic of prayer.
The Sisters spent the rest of the weekend visioning for the future. The ideas they generated will be the focus of further discussions in August when they meet again before the Pilgrimage.
The spirit was peaceful and joyous as the Sisters met and also celebrated the commemoration of the Samaritan Woman in their communal prayer.
