As the bell rings Rosa Farrar walks, surrounded by her family, to the door of our Chapel.
The community waits inside the Gathering Space for the new postulant to knock.
Sister Cecilia opens the door and asks Rosa the question: "What do you seek?"
Rosa introduces her family to the community: three sons, one daughter and many beautiful grandchildren! After the entrance rite, her family joined us for Evening Prayer and supper on the patio. What a beautiful day God gave us for a celebration!
I am a Benedictine Sister of Virginia since 2002. That's the most important thing about me. I am 47 years old - nine years in the monastery - and a native of the great state of New Jersey.
I have served as Vocation Director since 2004. It's the best "job" I've never been paid for. The heart of our life is found in these small reflections. Welcome to Saint Benedict Monastery - my home.
