Three Reasons to Celebrate

Sister Maria Linda Magbiro
Silver Jubilee
1985 - 2010

On October 3rd our contemplative monastic community celebrated Sr. Maria Linda's 25 years of vowed life. A friend of our community, Fr. Roch Ciandella, OFM celebrated a Mass of Thanksgiving in our chapel. Afterward we all enjoyed a festive dinner and rejoiced in Sister's vocation, her perseverance and her gifted presence among us. We prayed for all of her loving family, those in the eternal embrace of God and those who also shared her joy on that day.

   A New Member of Our Community - Sister Teresa Pijak joined our community on September 25, 2010. Fluent in Polish and Italian, Sr. Teresa is making great strides in mastering yet another language. Like most Americans we do not share her linguistic gifts and admire her diligence. We rejoice to have Sr. Teresa among us. She is pictured here with our Prioress, Sr. Paula Schmidt
The third reason for celebration is the launching of this new look for "Contemplative Horizon". You may have noticed some experimentation along the way. Thanks for your patience. Hope you like the new new color scheme. But most of all, the hope is that you will be please with what you read here and occasionally inspired.
