Valentine’s Day in Benet Hall

Valentine’s Day in Benet Hall at St. Scholastica Monastery is truly a special day.  The Sisters of Benet Hall spend weeks in preparation.  The Craft Group prepares a Valentine’s Day treats bag for each Sister living on Benet Hall.  They also make special Valentines and deliver them to their Benet Hall Sisters to be given by them to staff and friends.  The Valentine bags are placed in front of the nurses station and filled with candies and treats.  The staff and Sisters enjoy writing “love notes” and notes of thanks to each other.

 The Valentines are opened during the Valentine’s Day party.  Each Sister receives her own decorated bag of Valentines and treats.  The celebration of love continues with a special dessert served at the party.  This year, the Sisters enjoyed Chocolate Lava Cake!

“Our humanity comes to its fullest bloom in giving. We become beautiful people when we give whatever we can give: a smile, a handshake, a kiss, an embrace, a word of love, a present, a part of our life...all of our life.”
–Henri Nouwen
