Thanksgiving Day in the Monastery

What do Nuns, Turkey in the Straw, and Play-doh have in common? All of them were a part of our Thanksgiving Day celebration last week. We had our usual Thanksgiving Day Gaudeamus which brought much rejoicing, feasting, and time spent outdoors from after Mass until Night Prayer that evening.

After our Thanksgiving Dinner we teamed up to create symbols of different things for which we are grateful. This is where the Play-doh came in. For some entertainment during supper dishes Sr. Cecilia Maria played Turkey in the Straw which brought out the playfulness of everyone and was a joyful end to a day of gratitude for God's abundant blessings.

By the way...6 days until Christie Anna's Vestition and Naming Day - Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception! Keep her in your prayers and also those future postulants - We don't know who they are but God does. :)
