This last Saturday moms were invited to join in the fun with an afternoon of tea, talent, and prayer. We had truly gorgeous weather for the day; I'm sure the Sisters arranged that! We began in the Adoration Chapel with prayers and singing. We then headed outside for a tea party spread across two long tables under the shade of huge budding trees. After refreshments the girls put on a show displaying their various talents. As a finale, the girls were armed with roses and made a procession back into the chapel to honor the Blessed Mother with a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
I am so incredibly thankful for this group of young nuns. They have become such a wonderful example to my girls of beauty, piety and joyful love and service to Christ.

Oleander and Skoshi A played a duet during the talent show.
Special J's incredibly cute baby sister. She was playing "Peek-a-boo" with me over her mother's shoulder.
I took about a dozen photos of this sister. This is Sister Aparthenos (a derivative of "virgin" in Greek). She is always smiling and laughing. She makes everyone smile. She absolutely radiates joy.
