Fundraising Event in St Paul, MN
On February 20, 2020, Sr. Bede and Sr. Joanna traveled to the Twin Cities, where they both grew up. Archbishop Bernard Hebda graciously joined the sisters and about 50 guests at WA Frost in St. Paul for an evening presentation about the community and our project. The guests were able to view renderings of the new monastery, learn about our contemplative vocation and plans to build and move, watch the video of our life, and ask questions. The Archbishop spoke warmly and movingly about the need for prayer in our world, the vital importance of the contemplative life, and the wonderful opportunity we all have to work together to build something beautiful for God. As always, we are grateful to God for His many blessings and to all who continue to help us on our way.
