Home from ABFC...

Sister Ephrem smiles as participants report "table talk"... Her brilliant book is available through her community's on-line gift shop.

It was wonderful to meet the sisters at Beech Grove and to network with others in voction ministry... (monastic schola pictured above)

...and to meet foundresses I've never known.

Sister Kerry has a gift for sharing her passionate desire for justice and gently inviting others to "embrace the challenge."

Sister Karen Joseph tells the BEST stories!

A room filled with women who, each in their way, touch the future of Benedictine life in America...

Sister Glenna and Sister Cecilia (of Atchison, KS) both received honors for their years of service to ABFC. How proud was I?
