EJames2, I know someone who would be happy to hear they take people from other countries who would learn French!  This person knows some French but is there an English speaking nun(s) to answer email or letters in English?

Mmmm, love those Bennies!!

 

Thanks for posting. Way back in the mists of time when I was a member of Schola Gregoriano (based in Cambridge UK) one of our younger members was accepted as a postulant in this community.....don't know if she is still there and was one of those I just watched - it was over 30 years ago!

Even without knowing French, these images "speak."   Kergonan is not far from our Motherhouse.  We used to love to go there.  What a heartache that fire was.  It's a joy to see the new chapel and even some familiar faces.
