A snapshot of life in the convent. The other weekend, we postulants were fortunate enough to have a weekend off to spend at our lake/retreat house tucked in the woods of central Connecticut. The weather was agreeable so we christened the paddle boat for its first ride of the season to the island. As you can tell, it’s early spring and the grass isn’t quite green yet. But we had a great time nonetheless. Can’t wait until it’s warm enough to picnic and go swimming.
