On July 13 the Dominicans met for the 8th annual Mary Magdalene retreat, and also to bury Mrs Kathleen Schuck OP, our beloved prioress.
Fr Arnold Miller, parochial vicar of Our Lady of the Valley, where the chapter meets, was the guest presenter and he gave a presentation on the two Marys (Mother of God and the Magdalene).
The presentation was followed by dinner, and after dinner at dusk, we processed to the cemetery with Kathleen's cremains for the inurnment, which Fr Miller presided over.
Kathleen joins her husband Jim who went before her. We pray that together they will quickly enter the presence of God.
This weekend I stayed out at Chapter House Friday night; harvesting has started and I must say that it presents a very attractive morning view.
