I am grateful to God for the rain

Calendar spring is here—rain and thunderstorms in tow.  I am grateful to God for the rain.  I think especially of the trees that have had small amounts of moisture for some time.  Gentle rains are most welcome…and, God, please protect us from storms.

Many activities to report.  Starting with the past week: Saturday afternoon the Becker Family entertained the Sisters with wonderful music and great antics.  Such a talented family!  The audience really enjoyed their time with the Becker Family.  Thanks so much for visiting us.

Another activity Sunday evening was a beautiful Pre-Tour Concert by the Little Falls Community High School.  Those 30 students make beautiful music.  Little Falls will be proud of you as you represent us on your tour.  Thanks for coming to our Chapel to have a practice before you leave on your travels to Hollywood and Disney World.

At noon today we will have an enLUNCHment program about our Franciscan Volunteers.  EnLUNCHment is a ½ hour enrichment program that happens from 12 to 12:30, during the time while we eat lunch.

Thursday we are honoring Sisters Julien and Mary Pat and all those departments they oversee, who do so much for Motherhouse Administration.  Our thanks for all they do to make things run smoothly on this campus.  It’s a BIG job.  Thank you.

Tomorrow we also will have a bi-lingual Mass honoring Bishop Oscar Romero.  We’ll sing many Spanish Language songs at the Mass.  We’ve been practicing the music for weeks.

On Thursday evening the Sisters and Employees will be serving the meal for Oasis-Share-A-Meal at First Lutheran Church.  This is a delicious meal served to all hungry folks who come.

Next time I will go through the many Holy Week activities.

Peace and blessings,
