Mother Gail’s 80th Birthday

On January 31 Mother Gail celebrated her 80th birthday. It is hard to believe that someone that energetic and young looking could be 80 but she is.  A given in monastic life is that one does not retire.  Mother Gail is very active in community, serving as junior director, helps out on candy crews and several other jobs.

A plus for the celebration was having Mother Maureen of Wrentham here to celebrate with us.  She arrived just before dinner and will make her yearly retreat at our hermitage.
