Preparing for a Houseful...

of novice mistresses! This weekend, novice mistresses from across North America will be arriving at our monastery for the 2018 Annual Meeting of Novice Mistresses organized by the North American Association of Dominican Monasteries. Each year, a different monastery hosts the meeting and this year we have the privilege. So, our sisters have been eagerly preparing for the arrival of our guests!

One of the responsibilities of the Association is to provide means of collaboration, formation and support to the member monasteries. The annual meeting of novice mistresses is aimed at providing a forum for the novice mistresses to have a time of renewal, opportunities to learn new tools to meet the challenges of initial formation, and to build relationships between the formators.

Please keep our novices mistresses in your prayers this week as the gather together and then return to their home monasteries.
