The beautiful fall foliage provides a wonderful frame for our recently dedicated Cor Jesu Monastic Chapel.  In the background (left) the Crucifixion scene overlooks the monastic cemetery.

Sr. Maria shares information with our postulants (l-r) Sandra Chverchko, Angela Uhlott and Laura Walters in the new monastic library.
Sr. Mary Clare works on the photo layout for this newsletter in one of the new offices.  Before the laundry was relocated to the basement, the large commercial-size mangle occupied this space.
Sr. Franziska makes a pleated coif.  Sr. Franziska also is in charge of the retreat kitchen and is our main gardener.
