Wooden Boat Festival's Carol Bell (left) and festival volunteer (Times Photo) It's all happening at Rosaryville Dear Bryan, October has arrived, hopefully bringing us some cooler weather! We had an eventful September. Sr. Mary Noel and friends began meeting to study the book "Jes before Christianity." Two groups, one an afternoon group and the other an evening group will meet periodically from now to December. Sr. Rose Bowen also brought together a group of her faithful fol- lowers for her presentation on "John of the Cross and the Loving Kindness of God". The Day of Prayer included Mass and a deli- cious lunch as well as Sr. Rose's fascinating presentation on St. John of the Cross. Sister's next Day of Prayer will be on November 29, 2011 and is entitled "Advent, waiting with Mary." Our Kateri Hall Dormitory hosted several high school and col- lege retreats last month and we hosted a iool party. We love hav- ing young people here at Rosaryville.
