Happy St. Patrick’s Day to one and all

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to one and all. Would that each of us was so zealous in proclaiming the Faith as St. Patrick was!

We are past the middle of March. It sounds like we will have some bumpy weather the next couple days. It amazes me how the snow piles are going down. The moisture must be going into the ground because I don’t see little rivers all over the place. The storm warning for this evening until Wednesday should make life interesting—especially if one has to travel. According to the calendar spring comes Thursday morning. Welcome, Spring. Come and stay.

Today we have an Irish Lunch and dinner as our Dining Adventure as we honor Ireland. I expect Irish Soda Bread as one of the offerings.

Tuesday is the Employee/Sisters Retreat. I look forward to hearing motivational speaker, Mark Scharenbroich. Some of our Sisters were his teachers when he was a student at Holy Spirit School in St. Cloud.

The second of Sr. Elise’s presentations on Living the Paschal Mystery is Tuesday evening at 6:30 p.m.

Several of us attended the 60th Jubilee celebration for Crosier Brother Mike Glidden in Onamia, yesterday. He touched the lives of MANY young men as he coached basketball for so many years of his active ministry.

The other afternoon, Sr. Carolyn and her friends played music so the Sisters could dance. The smiles on their faces showed they were having a good time…and dancing is a good way to get exercise.

Lastly, consider the following: Today is the oldest you've ever been, yet the youngest you’ll ever be so…Enjoy this day while it lasts.

Peace and blessings,
Sister Mary Lou
