Some of the Nuns shelling pecans at evening recreation. Yes, we still had the gaudeamus day balloons and streamers up from Mother Catherine Marie's celebration - they stayed up until the end of our Thanksgiving Day Gaudeamus.

Sr. Marie Michael is one of those sisters who flees from cameras and was quite  gleeful when she thought she wouldn't be in the group picture. Little did she know I would get this close-up. By the way, I did OK this one with her before posting it on the blog.  She is a good sport!

For the past 3 falls we have met with a group of First Year Philosophy  seminarians from St. Meinrad. This year brought us one of our own Owensboro seminarians in the mix - welcome John Sohl! (pictured at far left)

Nora from New York was with us for a week-long live-in. It was a joy to have her prayerful, down-to-earth presence in our midst. We hope she comes back soon!  By the way, how many young ladies do you know who can skin, gut, cook and after all that, enjoy eating a wild turkey?  That's our Nora!

Here Elizabeth is giving us a fab piano concert the last night she was with us.

FANTASTIC NEWS!  Elizabeth is planning to return to enter the monastery on January 5th - the Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord!  Please keep her and her loved ones in your prayers. We can't wait to see you again postulant-to-be Elizabeth!
