On March 7th, Fr. Michael Perry
presided at the memorial mass for Helen
with her family and friends. During the homily, we
heard a list of things that Helen was never without. The
monastery has an extensive collection of her works. After mass,
the public was invited for a reception in the guest house and could see
many samples of her art works. Meanwhile, Fr. Martin
left for an extended rest
and recuperation. Fr. James
attended the annual meeting of Benedictine Abbots in Cullman, AL.
from Febr. 13-17. We had a sign of warmer weather at the sight of
large flocks of geese flying north. During the month,
students from Cornell University and Penn State spent time here.
Lent began and the illustration of Helen Siegl is an inspiration to
return to the Lord.
The Friends of Mount Saviour arranged a
study program on the Letters of St. Paul. The public is invited
on every Sunday of March at 10:30 a.m. The resource book is "What
St. Paul Really Said" by N.T. Wright.
