  1. I love this video representing the earthy, life giving ministry of these sisters. Thank you for posting it!

  2. It warms my heart to see my beloved sisters enjoying their lives at Bluestone Farms! The Council of my order, The Brotherhood of Saint Gregory, utilized that wonderful retreat house for meetings on a number of occasions in decades past, and it is a delight to see that welcoming building and its beautiful grounds come to new life as a farmstead! Here’s to each of you, dear sisters — may you continue to be happy there as you bring new life to that place of quiet and peace!

    What a wonderful ministry. As religious, we never know where the Holy Spirit is going to take us. Thank you Sisters for answering the call to the religious life and for your ministry of helping us all to see the Holy in the Earth.
