Beginning Candy Season

On Labor Day we have the tradition of beginning what we call ‘Candy Season’.  We start a heavier schedule of work in our candy factory to get ready for fall and Christmas sales.

We have a special Terce; the first of the ‘little hours’ of prayer that we pray in our chapel in the candy factory. Afterwards M.Rebecca went around to each room to bless it with holy water.

At the end of the week we united with all in fasting and prayer as requested by Pope Francis, praying especially for peace in Syria.
