I don't do endings really, but I did give hugs, and know that I will see most of the novices for one reason or another yet again this summer. But, our semester is officially over, and what a semester it was!
Tomorrow Pat and I leave for a gathering of all of the CSJs across the U.S. Federation who are in formation or under ten years of final vows and the vocation/formation teams. We will head to Nazareth, KY for some input, sharing, fun, etc. More on that next week.
As we leave, the rest of our community will also be headed out. Sr. Paula is leaving tomorrow for a month-long visit to Arizona to see the friends and family she left when she joined us here. We'll miss her tons. And Amy and Clare will be off to the next session of our Provincial Chapter meetings. This is one weekend I wish I could be in two places at once. But, we have a few sisters charged with calling every so often to leave a message telling us what is going on. Anyway, there should be lots to share next week. For now, off to pack.
