Last Thursday, Sr. Donald arrived home after two weeks in England, grateful for the experience and to the benefactors who made the trip possible. After spending a couple of days in London as the guest of Sr. Catherine, SLG, at Lambeth Palace, she attended a Benedictine Experience retreat at Canterbury Cathedral. After 18 years of giving Benedictine Experience retreats, this was an opportunity to relax and see how others do a retreat on the same theme. High points were visits to the shrine of St. Thomas à Becket, St. Augustine’s monastery, and Vespers at St. Mildred’s Monastery. Before coming home, she was able to spend a few days with the Sisters of the Love of God in Oxford.

Back in Windsor, our garden grew, and we are enjoying its first fruits: radishes and summer squash.Image
