Easter Season with the Sister Servants

Easter Preparations

Every year, we look forward to Holy Week and the Easter Triduum. Our religious life allows us to enter more fully into the rhythm of this sacred week. All hands are on deck as we prepare for these holiest of days through our work in the chapel, in the yard and in the kitchen.

The Triduum Liturgies

Fr. Patrick Mary, MFVA, celebrated our Triduum liturgies, and he was joined by some of his brother Friars who assisted him with preaching. Fr. Joseph Mary, MFVA, celebrated our Easter Sunday Mass. Still restricted by COVID, we were not able to have the larger crowds of past years. We look forward to welcoming our friends again for Holy Week in 2022!

Easter Octave Outing to the Bankhead National Forest

One of the ways we celebrated the Easter octave this year was by taking an outing to the Bankhead National Forest in Northern Alabama. Several of the Sisters went hiking in the Sipsey Wilderness area while others enjoyed the nature and fellowship with one another.
