Novitiate Slide Show

This is the first time I have tried this:  upload a video here on Blogger.  Above, please find this first attempt.  It is a simple slide show featuring our novitiate, some recent photos of ceremonies and more prosaic scenes.  In the background you will hear them singing a Christmas Poem.  The sudden cold weather here in Barhamsville after an overly long, hot summer makes me think of Christmas!

Construction Update

So far, this little flag is the only outward sign that we are about to construct a new novitiate dormitory.  It was placed there to mark the location where a sample of our ground was to be taken to determine how deep to put the posts that will hold up said dorm.  We are happy to report that the posts do not have to go too deep!

On our library table is the other evidence of our intent:  the newly drawn up construction plans!  Here is a pertinent picture:

Then, our insurance company wants to know the exact location of the construction.  So here is a modified excerpt from our old plans:

The Sister in charge of our finances informs me that we have so far raised enough money to pay for our new construction drawings.  Hurrah for us and all of our good benefactors!  But we are going to need more funds for things like bricks, mortar, windows, doors...So if you can help us out, please give what you can by using our little donate button at the top of the page.  All donations are tax deductible and more importantly, will be rewarded by our good God who is never outdone in generosity.
