Sister Lois will retire August 15 as Prioress, and Wednesday night the Community met at dinner to thank her for her ten years of devoted service.
Sister Barbara Higgins and Sister Jeanne Ann Weber kept us entertained with their comedy, and Sister Lois’s administrative team gave heart-felt tributes to her leadership.
Under the direction of Sister Lisa Maurer as Master of Ceremonies, we came up one by one to give her ‘magic coupons’ for activities she can once again enjoy, including bird-watching, caring for flowers, watching Twins baseball, blowing bubbles and unbroken sleep, plus enough funds to take a well-deserved vacation.
We prayed over her, and she responded with a meditation on the loving eyes of Jesus, written by a favorite poet, John O’Donohue.
