Have you been to visit/met them before? I just met them the other week, on their way back from visiting Benedictine College in Kansas. They're so fun! :topsy:

They are a hoot! I met them in February at the Here I Am Lord Conference in St. Charles. They invited me to come visit sometime. They are not far from where I go to school.
Also, sorry if I confused anyone with the Polish... But when I was with them at the conference, they had found some Sisters from Slovakia and a Polish priest, so a large portion of my time I sat in awe of their jovial-ness and love and joy as I could not understand what they were saying to each other! It was amazing. :) Amazing, amazing Sisters. One of the Sisters shared her vocation story in a small group that weekend and it was so simple and so beautiful.
I will try to visit them sometime soon to say hello and perhaps catch up a little. I have Sister Margaret's business card. :D:

[quote name='sunnysideup' post='1273551' date='May 14 2007, 05:34 PM']It could just be the color fading from the sun or something, I'm not sure.
Why are the sisters hands wrapped up...I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the ceremony but what is the symbolism/meaning behind it?[/quote]
the habits are faded light brown to dark brown, poverty and sun,,yes..

THey go through a type of Old Rite symbolic anointing of the hands ,ready for SERVICE and offering 'with empty hands'..and as in all anointings in the past, one would wrap them, as a sign of the sacredness, and protection..

Sr Mary Catharine OP

Wow! You never see photos of Le Barroux! I remember when they were founded. I was a teenager and I thought FRANCE! I can't speak French! And I knew I couldn't really learn it because I grew up in a bi-lingual family and my mom gave up trying to teach me the Hail Mary!
Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos! Such large cells!
I thought they had more Americans. A lot entered from St. Mary's in the '80s

Great!, well it is difficult for Americans to maintain, in European Communities i find.
the cells arent as big as the picture implies, its a wide angle corner shot.
the photos are 5 years old..
i hoped to capture some pictures from last years Church Consecration video,, but i dont think the DVD is working on this computer:(
