Bulletin Letter from February 19
It has been a very busy week for the Dominican Community as a number of guests have come and gone. Of course, last weekend, we were blessed to have the novice community and their Novice Master, Fr. Anthony Rosevear. It was truly a blessed visit and we enjoyed hosting them for the 5 days they stayed in Tucson. No sooner had they left than the Provincial of the Southern Dominican Province, Fr. Chris Eggleton, arrived to have a Provincial Visitation with Fr. Bob Burns, who lives in our community but remains a member of the Southern Province. Again, we enjoyed Fr. Chris’ presence and he enjoyed his time in our community. He shared with me that he had not laughed in a long time the way he did at the dinner table with our community. That was a beautiful affirmation of our community life and a real air of contentment that exists among the Dominicans here. As Fr. Chris leaves today (Friday) we are blessed to welcome Sr. Carolyn Marie Monahan who is here to make a Congregational Visitation of the Sisters’ community. She will be here through the weekend.
Lent begins Wednesday. I want to say a huge thank you to all those who participated in the Lenten Reflection Booklet project. It will be ready to pick up on Wednesday.
