Sr. Mary Catherine, OP in the renovated refectory
I know many Anchoress readers kindly made donations to the hugely necessary (and beautifully completed) renovations at the Monastery of Our Lady of the Rosary, in Summit, New Jersey. The updated kitchen means the cabinets are no longer falling down as the sisters cook, the ramps and renovated refectory means the community can all eat together, again, and I believe the thriving soap-and-lotion business that helps to keeps them afloat can now expand a little too, but more news on that later in the summer. And Deo Gratias, the sisters are expanding their novitiate housing in order to accommodate more vocations.
The Dominican Nuns are remembering each of their benefactors in their prayers by means of a framed donor list, so I thought I would just pass along their thanks.
