Around the Abbey

Sr. Nettie Gamble’s Silver Jubilee

On January 25, the feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, our Sr. Nettie celebrated 25 years as a professed Cistercian nun.  We had a special celebration of the Eucharist with Fr. David Bauch  of New Melleray Abbey celebrating.  He gave a wonderful sermon, reminding us that our religion is a person, Jesus and that we have all that we need to follow him and  bring him more fully into the world as did persons like Dorothy Day and Mother Teresa.

After the Eucharist we had a celebratory dinner with the community.  Sr. Nettie shared on the most important events in her monastic life.  Blessings on the next 25 years, Sr. Nettie!
