Thank you for your patience!

Ok, dear Sisters (and wanna-be Sisters, and discerners, as well as the just plain curious who lurk about...), I've finally had a chance to get down to the ground floor where there's wireless internet access. It's a blustery Friday night, and the wind and icy snow are whipping and whirling outside here in Grand Rapids, Michigan. What a better time to get all curled up on a comfy couch with the heat from my laptop and introduce our two newest ring members:

Nun Bytes is the alter ego of Sr. Diana Seago, OSB, a Benedictine from Mount St. Scholastica in Atchinson, Kansas. With an eye for design and a penchant for computers and networking, I'm sure Sr. Diana will be a welcome addition to the ring!

In the Footsteps of Mary
is the blog of "an orthodox 15 year old Catholic who is discerning a vocation to the religious life." I seem to remember an email from her saying that she was having trouble getting the ring code added to her blog. I've gone ahead and added her, and will try to work with her to get the code put on in the coming days.

A thousand apologies for how long it's taken me to get to this. I recently moved in with my own Groovy Sisters (I'm still a "pre-candidate," but I'm that much closer to hopefully entering, and am feeling quite at home among "my nuns" once again!). I also started a new job just over a month ago that's been a bit challenging these past few weeks.

Sister Christer has kindly volunteered to lend a hand with the ring, and while I haven't yet "spoken" about this yet with our foundress, Sr. Susan Rose, I'm guessing that she, busy Novice that she currently is, will have no objections. So welcome aboard to our newest members and our newest co-moderator!

It's good to be back online myself!

Natty, I tried to post a welcome to Diana on her website/blog but couldn't find a link.

So, from here, a hearty welcome to all!

Susan Rose, CSJP said...

A ok with me!! Thanks Christine & Natty for keeping the dream alive.

Welcome, friends! What with all the press and all, seems like we should try to get back into gear - and I'm happy to help. Looking forward to our new life too!

I'm just glad to see the REAL groovy sisters (aka Benedictines) continue to take over!!! :-)
