ULI Juliane ScheiferMount Saviour Monastery

March 2009
This month we heard the sad news that Juliane (ULI) Scheifer who was in charge of the ladies' guesthouse for many years died at the age of 93.  She was the nanny for the Albrecht family and came here with the Albrechts who were in charge of St. Gertrude's guest house.  When the health of Maximillian Albrecht worsened, Uli took over.  After Maximillian's death in Portsmouth RI, Uli moved to join Mrs. Albrecht.  Br. Gabriel's brother, Gerald Duffee, died and a funeral mass was celebrated March 25th in Pennsylvania.  Br. Pierre went to the funeral of a brother-in-law, Jacques Proteau, who died after some complications following surgery for a cancer of the vocal cords. 
    Br. William's health is improving and was able to visit us several times this month.  On March 20th, we received John Ketzer as postulant.  On the 23rd. our first lamb appeared on the scene.  It was an unplanned parenthood; we knew that four or five ewes had visited the rams without our approval.  The flock is due to give birth after Easter.
