What a beautiful summer day to host each other at Angela’s Villa for our first Sunday Mass and Brunch. Four of us met at St. Christine Church for 9 a.m. Mass and two others joined us later. The uplifting music brought the liturgy alive for us. Everyone felt at home immediately because of our time washing windows, cleaning kitchen cabinets and re-finishing furniture. A few of us prepared the eggs, toast and fruit while others visited leisurely. Sister Nancy Pawlen joined us and added to the spirited conversation about our pets and took some great photos.

Our time together included the sharing of our faith and life experiences with each other. We read a short talk by Pope Francis, “The Threshold of Faith." We offered our reflection and prayed for each other as the new semester begins. Several young women will be doing student teaching. Others are studying for either a Bachelors or Masters degree. Two are interns or starting a new job.
Thank you to those who upgraded our house and made it like new, ready for us to create a home. Special thanks to Peggy Eicher, Director of Personnel and her staff of workers. They have provided us with a spacious all-purpose room as well as a beautiful and comfortable living space. The young women who serve with us will gather to study and pray, prepare meals and have fun, and thus create a vibrant community.
