Happy Valentine's Day!

Sunday, February 14, 2010:

Happy Valentine's day! We hope you had a great day with your loved ones. Today, Laura and Jackie went for mass to our local parish, St. Elizabeth's of Hungary(http://www.psichurch.com/%20churches/016stelizabeth/index.html). After lunch, we went out to Ted Drewes (http://www.teddrewes.com/Drewes.asp) for ice-cream together with the other sisters in the community where we each got a pink carnation with our order! What a wonderful and welcome surprise to commemorate the day :-) The afternoon got even better when Laura and Jackie went to Kenrick-Glennon seminary for the open house tour. There were lots of people there and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour especially hearing about the history behind the seminary walls and the art accompanying it. We also got to meet some priests who are friends of our community as well as some "college" and "theologian" seminarians. The seminarians shared with us what their formation and life were like in the seminary, which was great. At the end of the day, we even got to meet some of the seminarian actors in the "12 angry men" play we had watched a couple of weeks ago! It was a relaxing Sunday - thank God for the gift of rest!

So, what did you do for Valentine's day this year?

Love those happy smiling faces Laura and Jackie! I'm sure it was very special to hear the seminarians' vocation stories!
