Region Formation Meeting at Esopus


Redemptoristine contemplative nuns from around the world are meeting at our monastery this week. We are thrilled to have sisters with us whose native lands include Thailand, the Philippines, Ireland, Slovakia and the good ole U.S.A. The topic is formation. In the language of religious communities formation means in-service education for those just entering the Order or in-service education at another level for those who have more experience but are eager for information and spiritual renewal.

We've had the benefit of great speakers (more to come on that score), enjoyed terrific meals and conversation, shared recreation (if pass the Easter egg is recreation) and, of course, prayed the Liturgy of the Hours together and been united around the table of the Lord at Holy Eucharist. All has been a tremendous blessing.

AND the weather has been the most beautiful with all the signs of spring and new life filling our eyes wherever we look.

More to come.
