The halls of the Monastery rang with laughter and the excited sounds of storytelling on Saturday July 17, when the monastic Community hosted Re-Membering Friends 2010. Re-Membering was the name chosen in 1995 when the first weekend event was held to bring together current and former members of the Community for a time of healing, sharing, and recognition of the ways in which God continues to journey with us who share a common Benedictine heritage.

The day included a Eucharistic Celebration with Monsignor Popesh as Presider, who shared memories of his 15 years as chaplain at St. Scholastica Monastery. A picnic lunch was followed by informal visiting including a coffee hour with the Sisters living on Benet Hall.
