A Week of Celebration

Happy Birthday Everyone!

Since we would not be together during our birthdays in the Novitiate house, we agreed to have a big party for all of us last June 15 (Monday). We had a lovely meal and a delicious birthday cake. Oonah, Darlene and Marge joined our celebration.

Oonah’s Visit at the Novitiate House

We were privileged to have Oonah with us for a few days. We had a meaningful and encouraging talked with her individually. It was nice to have a conversation with her. She also shared with us about her experience as a superior general and how she is leaving it.

Finally We had Holidays!

Last Wednesday ( June 17) we went to the Old Jaffa to have our long awaiting holidays. We stayed in the Old Jaffa Youth Hostel for three days and two nights. It was a moment of rest, enjoying good food, relaxing, reading books, sight seeing, chatting and sharing with one another, walking along the beach, sitting peacefully as the sun set to its setting and playing games. We visited St. Peter’s Church and Simon the Turner’s House.
