The Christmas season has been a blessed time at the Convent of the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon this year as this is one of the times when the Sisters can come together and work on a project together. Decorating for Christmas is a favorite for many of the Sisters and the Chapel is one of the main focal points. The Sisters do not decorate until Advent is over. Christmas Eve day is a busy time getting everything ready for the vigil Mass in the evening and Christmas Mass the following day. Decorations will stay up until after the Epiphany.
I hope your new year is filled with many blessings. Let us invite Christ deeper into our hearts this year. God Bless you!
