Our family is so blessed to have the Novitiate House of the Servants of the Lord just down the road from us. On Saturdays, our girls spend their late morning at the Little Flower Oritory with the Sisters and throughout the year the Sisters throw festive and fun celebrations, including their annual All Saints party.
Not only does multi-talented Sister Katie help lead the Oritory, she also teaches Special K's 3rd grade CCD class.
Sisters Leonie (from New Zealand!) and Maggie, demonstrated their complicated two nun relay race to a group of eager children.
Sister Leonie (from New Zealand!) partnered up with a very eager Lil' Wingnut, who promised the sisters he was as fast as an arrow.
You may remember this Sister from posts past. She is Sister Aeiparthanos. She just returned to help out at the Novitiate House after a stay in the Junior House of Studies in Washington DC. I think Sister Aeiparthanos is the face of this order; young, beautiful, joyful, and completely in love with Christ and dedicated to her vocation. We are so glad to have her so close to us once again.
What a wonderful witness these Sisters are to our community. What a blessing for us to have them here!
Happy Feast of All Saints!
